Rain Chances and a Break From the Extreme Heat

Today's Forecast

We will finally see a break from the extreme heat we've seen throughout the work week as a shortwave trough dips to the south and a frontal boundary approaches the Ozarks.  This will bring increasing cloud cover and chances for rain.  The cloud cover will also aid in suppressing temperatures.  Overall, we expect party cloudy skies for the weekend with temperatures retreating after Saturday.  The heat advisory for our northwestern counties is set to expire at 8:00 PM on Saturday.

Saturday: The first half of the day will see mostly sunny skies, but the approaching front will bring more cloud cover into the afternoon.  There is a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.  Highs will reach the mid 90s for many, but temps will vary with cloud cover and the development of any precipitation.  Overnight lows are expected to be in the mid 70s.

Sunday: The chance of rain remains on Sunday, with highs in the lower 90s and overnight lows in the mid 70s. 

Next Week: The chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain throughout the workweek.  We expect to see a gradual drop in temperatures, with many getting into the upper 80s by midweek. We could see 1 to 2" of rain over a period of several days, which will help with the deficit we've had over the last few weeks.
