A high pressure system is overhead and that's why we've seen nothing but sunshine and northwesterly winds for your Saturday. It was a nice Saturday... a little hot and humid still but, albeit, a nice day overall. We kicked off the weekend, though, with some severe thunderstorms as a cold front pushed southeastward. Now,we're going to be sitting underneath quiet skies and comfortable conditions to end the weekend but another round of severe weather is on the way and so is some hot temperatures as well.
High temperatures today climbed back into the 80s and 90s with northwesterly winds persistent throughout the day. Some of us along the Missouri River did come close to hitting the triple digit mark once again however, we've seen cooler and drier air moved overhead thanks to the northwesterly winds. In addition to not seeing as hot of temperatures as we once did, our dew points have also dropped across northwestern portions of the forecast area. Making it more comfortable but also making the environment better for fire weather which is why you'll want to take extra procautions if you're planning on grilling or having a bonfire this weekend.
As we continue to go through the weekend, the high pressure system is going to settle overhead on Sunday, keep skies open as well as continue to bring us northwesterly winds and cooler temperatures to end the weekend. As the high pressure system begins to exit, Sunday night into Monday, southerly winds are going to take over and another low pressure system is going to begin to move in from the Rockies. On Monday, it may bring some scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms on Monday across the Missouri River but could also bring a line of severe thunderstorms to eastern portions of the forecast area Monday night into Tuesday.
Low temperatures tonight are going to settling into the 50s and 60s underneath clear skies with light northwesterly winds... a more comfortable night than what we've seen over the past couple of days.
Sunday's high temperatures call for 70s, 80s and 90s with plenty of sunshine and northwesterly winds.
We'll see the chance for rain on Sunday night and continue into Tuesday night as a low pressure system move eastward. Temperatures will climb back into the 80s, 90s and 100s on Tuesday before cooling down back into the low 80s to end the week. It looks as though our long range models, though, bring back the heat and humidity as we go into next weekend.
