.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 0254 AM CDT SAT SEP 05 2015

The upper level ridge over the region will continue the summer
like weather across the Ozarks today and through tonight. In all,
the Labor Day weekend looks to remain warm and humid with highs
around 90 degrees today and overnight lows remaining in the lower
70s for most of the area.

A few isolated showers or even a rumble of thunder will again be
possible but will be the exception rather than the rule for today
during the peak heating hours this afternoon.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 0254 AM CDT SAT SEP 05 2015

Warm and humid conditions will continue through most of the Labor
Day weekend with highs Sunday and into Monday remaining around the
90 degree mark.

An upper level trough remains indicated by the models to begin to
flatten the upper level ridge over the region through Sunday and
into Monday. This will allow an advertised cold front to push into
the Ozarks late Sunday night into Monday morning. This will bring
a bit more active rain and storm pattern to the region.

The overall upper level pattern will become more zonal as a
result of the upper level trough. This will allow for the frontal
boundary to stall and hang out over the region fro much of next
week with showers and storms possible through Wednesday night into
early Thursday.

A cooler and drier airmass will then move over the region once the
frontal boundary finally shifts southeast of the area late in the
week. This will bring a bit more fall like weather to the area for
Friday and next weekend with highs in the 70s and overnight lows
possibly touching the upper 40s.

concerns. Winds will be light and southerly 10 knots or less
