Storms Firing Again Tonight
The upper level low is slowly working its way across Kansas. A warm and humid atmosphere remains in place over the Ozarks. The upper low is helping to lift this tropical air mass and produce strong to severe thunderstorms. Baseball size hail was reported near Cedar Gap southwest of Mansfield. Storms tonight will be capable of large hail, damaging winds and possibly a small tornado.
Colder Weather on the Way
The upper level low will spin over the Ozarks Friday and Saturday. Isolated showers are possible with the passage of the cold air core. The highest chances of rain will occur in the far eastern and northeastern counties. Temperatures will cool off drastically. In fact temperatures will be down some 30 degrees from earlier in the week. The cold weather will last through the entire weekend.
