Our weather pattern is filled with the typical subtleties of summer!
The very weak weather system aloft which has been responsible for random clusters of rain and storms is still in a position to affect the Ozarks. Like yesterday, the most likely location for rain is in northern Arkansas and southern Missouri. Also, like yesterday, these features are often difficult to predict precisely. One thing is for sure, the rain coverage will continue to be spotty.
Over the next few days, the weather system will gradually fade away to be replaced by another hot dome of air by later in the week. A return of upper nineties or even triple digit heat is possible in the Ozarks. The records for this time period will be more out of reach then those of late June and early July:
|Monday, July 16||89||104||1980|
|Tuesday, July 17||89||107||1954|
|Wednesday, July 18||89||108||1954|
|Thursday, July 19||89||103||1980|
|Friday, July 20||89||103||2006|
It looks like a “backdoor cool front” might have a chance at moving through the Ozarks by the weekend. These fronts usually have the power to cool us down somewhat and occasionally have a few rain chances connected to them.
