A storm or two cannot be ruled across far southern Missouri and
eastern Ozarks through early this evening and again Tuesday

low level convergence and relatively dry mean moisture within the

Tuesday as the upper level ridge begins to expand back over the
region. High temperatures Tuesday will edge upward a degree or two
with maximum heat index values approaching 100 in some areas
particularly from southeastern Kansas into central Missouri.

Wednesday allowing for highs to climb into the middle 90s. Heat
index values Wednesday will climb to between 100 and 105 degrees.
A Heat Advisory may eventually be needed for portions of the area

A front sag southward into the region Thursday and Friday as an
upper level trough tracks across the Great Lakes region. This
front will be trigger for isolated to scattered showers and
