AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

249 PM CDT Sun Jul 27 2014
A Canadian airmass was in the process of spreading across extreme
southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks. A few showers and
thunderstorms developed in response to this feature, mainly over
Kansas, and now over far southern Missouri.
Locations across far southern Missouri will have continued chances
for rainfall through the rest of this afternoon. This rain should
come to an end prior to 7 pm this evening, as the frontal system
continues to move into the deep south states.
Much cooler and less humid air will be felt tonight as
temperatures range from the upper 50s to the lower 60s.
.LONG TERM...(Monday through Sunday)
A fantastic forecast is on tap for the upcoming work week.
Temperatures will range from the upper 70s to the lower 80s on an
afternoon basis through Friday. This airmass will also be
accompanied by low humidity.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible from late
Tuesday night through Friday. We`re not talking about a wash out,
and chances remain conservative at this time. As a matter of fact,
many locations may not receive any rain at all this week.
This cooler than normal air is occurring in response to a deep
upper trough of low pressure that will become established over the
upper Midwest. This pattern will force northwest flow into the
Ozarks, keeping the area unusually cool for late July.
Have a great start of the week !
