Well, it doesn`t get much better than this for late June across
the Missouri Ozarks region. We are seeing mostly sunny skies with
temperatures in the middle 70s to near 80 as of mid afternoon
along with low humidity values. Surface high pressure over the
Upper Midwest will continue to move down into the region tonight
and Sunday. We will see another beautiful night with overnight
lows in the middle to upper 50s and highs tomorrow on either side
of 80 degrees. A little high cloudiness may try to sneak end
towards the end of the afternoon on Sunday.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday Night through Saturday)
Issued at 208 PM CDT Sat Jun 24 2017

Northwest flow in the upper levels will bring a disturbance across
the region late Sunday nigh through Monday night. This feature
will bring a chance for scattered showers and storms to the area.
We are not expecting widespread rainfall or any severe weather
with this upper level system but if you have outdoor
mindful of scattered rain chances. There will be more cloudiness
across the area on Monday which will keep temperatures mainly in
the middle to upper 70s.

Southerly winds return on Tuesday as well as the low level
moisture and humidity. Temperatures will also be on the increase
for the middle next week. Southerly winds will become kinda breezy
Tuesday and Wednesday with gusts up to 30 mph possible. A trough
will develop across the northern Plains Region and Rocky Mountains
by next Wednesday through Friday. A frontal boundary will slowly
drift southward towards the region interacting with little
impulses from the upper level trough. This storm system will
bring several rounds of scattered showers and storm chances late
in the week. It it too far out to forecast the exact timing of the
better rain chances but it appears late Thursday night through
Saturday looks stormy and unsettled which may linger into next
