Monday, August 12 Forecast Discussion

Another muggy day with storms having developed across the area. We will see the storms again come to an end after sunset, and then we will keep clouds around and increase rain chances for Tuesday and Wednesday.

A cold front has been stalled to our north for days, and it is this cold front that was responsible for all the flooding across Missouri and other portions of the Mississippi River Valley. This front is now going to slowly slide southward, and take at least two days to cross the area. It will begin to impact us tomorrow morning, beginning with locations north of I-20. In fact, the further south you are, you may stay mostly dry tomorrow. That chances on Wednesday as the front moves south of I-20 and brings more rain to southern portions of the viewing area.

The front will exit Thursday, and then just a lingering shower or afternoon storm is possible into the weekend, but we will notice significantly cooler and drier air as highs remain in the 80s and dew points drop into the 60s, which is where our overnight lows will be.
