Severe Storms Tonight, Dangerous Heat Friday

By  | 

Strong to severe storms are rolling across the Ozarks this evening. High winds have been the main threat. This activity is now diving into north Arkansas and is tracking southeast.

A few additional storms are possible later tonight but should not be as severe as the evening activity. Lows tonight will only drop to the mid 70’s by morning.

Dangerous heat then becomes an issue for Friday. The Stormteam is predicting temperatures at or above 100 degrees for the southern half of the viewing area. Northern Counties will approach 100. Heat Indexes will approach 110 degrees.

A weak cool front will intersect this heat by late afternoon and explosive thunderstorms may form across southern Missouri and north Arkansas. This should happen around dinner time.

The good news is that this weekend the weather will turn nice. Lows will drop to nearly 70 with highs around 90 and lower humidity to boot. The nice weather then extends into next week with little chance in temperatures other than the fact that lows some nights may be as cool as mid 60’s.
