be an isolated strong to severe storm or two possible tomorrow

The front slows down as it moves through on Monday. There will be
additional chances for showers and storms on Monday especially
over the southern Ozarks closer to the boundary as it moves

Northwest flow develops by Tuesday across the region. We will
actually experience some relief from the heat and humidity by
Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs middle of next week will be in the
lower to middle 80s...maybe even some upper 70s for highs across

looks to be dry for Tuesday and most of Wednesday. We will watch
for a possible MCS or organized convection developing over the
