Widespread clouds and occasional showers and thunderstorms
continue across the region this afternoon, as a series of
shortwaves push east-northeast across the area. Precipitation

develop to allow for fog across the eastern Ozarks overnight.
Right now it doens`t look to be too dense, and will likely be most
widespread in protected/sheltered valleys. Further to the west,
increasing southerly winds should limit any fog development.

Tuesday will continue the trend of very summer like weather, with
breezy south/southeast winds and highs in the upper 80s to near
