With June right around the corner, we’re arriving at that time of the year when we have to deal with hit or miss showers and thunderstorms. Today will be one of those days.
Outdoors now, the fog we had in spots has finally burned off. There, it’s just partly cloudy.
In other areas, it’s completely sunny.
Temperatures are all over the place now. It’s coolest where clouds have just broken up, following the morning fog. It’s warmest where sunshine has been at work heating the ground the longest..
Still other communities have showers right now. Take a look at 4WARN Live Doppler Radar as of 9am…
Notice more rain moving into western Arkansas and Missouri. That’s being produced by some energy in the upper atmosphere that will roll into our region this afternoon, triggering rain and storms here.
Temperatures this afternoon should go this way…
By 2:30pm, most spots will be in the 80s.
FUTURECAST shows how showers and storms will develop later today….and linger into this evening.
More rain’s likely in the days to come, too.
By the weekend, notice how the likelihood for rain increases significantly. On both Saturday and Sunday, clouds will win out at times with showers and thunderstorms. There will also be SOME sunshine, allowing temperatures to climb into the lower 80s. By Monday of next week, that rain system will have moved on, so the weather will be pleasant again, with highs around 80.
