The Easter weekend was fabulous but not the chance for rain increases. A weak cold front is set to move into the Ozarks tonight and become stationary in north Arkansas. Moisture moving north from the gulf will over-ride the front and several rounds of rain and thunderstorms are forecast for the next couple of days.
One round of showers is possible later tonight. Temperatures look to be quite mild with lows in the mid to upper 50’s. High temperatures Tuesday will vary widely from north to south. Areas north of the front will stay in the 60’s while south of the front highs in the 70’s are forecast.
The front comes back to the north Wednesday as low pressure develops in Texas and shoots northeast. Lows in the lower 50’s with highs around 70 are likely. A round or two of showers and thunderstorms are possible. Thursday looks to be similar to Wednesday except the rain begins to slide east as the storm passes.
Friday looks sunny dry and mild at this point with little chance in the temperatures. The next storm then moves across the northern plains and drags a cold front into the Ozarks this weekend. The chance for thunderstorms increases but mainly for Missouri with Arkansas being drier. Readings should stay warm.
