Wow, what a great feeling! A nice north wind is keeping temperatures in a comfortable summer zone, just now gliding up into the eighties.
The jet stream winds are flowing out of the north, allowing an area of high pressure to make an extended stay. The winds are blowing because of the pressure difference between the high and a low out east.
Tonight, we will probably have the coolest readings since June. Many locations will fall into the middle fifties.
I believe we will be trending toward more cool fronts in the near future. Another shot of cool air will arrive Monday. It also looks like a second cool front will slide in late next week.
Our hottest day next week looks like Thursday, after a warm front pushes north of us. We’ll probably be back in the nineties.
There are three rain possibilities. The first is the Monday cool front. A second is a returning warm front late Wednesday.
The front late next week *might* have the potential to “hang up” and provided extended rain chances for the Ozarks.
Tropical depression #7 might become T.S. Gordon this weekend. I included some computer model track forecasts for reference. Official forecasts have it staying a tropical storm and heading into the heart of the Caribbean by Monday-Wednesday.
