But it's that warmth that's adding a risk of unstable and stormy weather over our Ozarks.
SEVERE WEATHER THREAT
Saturday and Sunday will both feature a risk for strong, gusty straight-line winds and large hail. Dynamics of the atmosphere will be capable of producing and supporting tornadoes, but the risk looks less likely today than it did this time yesterday (in other words, it's trending toward a safer, less-likely level).
YOUR STORMY WEEKEND
Rain and storm clouds will attempt to make a run for the Ozarks late tonight, mainly after Friday Night Football. A lot of the storm activity will remain West of the Ozarks, but some just across the Kansas and Oklahoma line will see wet and stormy weather before dawn Saturday.
Depending on the amount of rain you see Saturday, severe weather risks may increase.
We'll be watching the development potential through tomorrow morning... and by afternoon, a line of storms may develop moving East-Northeast.
Most of the week to come will be mild with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. I don't see a "cold snap" until Thursday... and even that seems like a one-day sale at this point. Highs late week might dip into the 50s before milder weather builds in again for the Halloween weekend. Scary stuff there.
Enjoy your Friday and your weekend,
