Time for Hit or Miss Storms

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.

    On this day in 1889, the temperature got no higher than 48, a whopping 38-degree drop from the day before. On 31st, another very low high of 54 was registered, the coldest 2 days to close out the month of May. Most conversations those days probably started off on the topic of weather, something that must have been common that year, as it was quite anomalous. High temperatures apparently decided to take it easy in 1889, only 11 90-degree days were observed, with just 9 in the months of summer (none in June), the highest being a modest 93, all records. The rest of the year was markedly cooler than normal until April-esque December and that winter, officially, remains the warmest on record.
