Storms Tonight Late
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect. One batch of thunderstorms have rolled across the Ozarks this afternoon. A few of the storms produced hail to the size of quarters. These storms will exit east this evening. A low pressure system is located near Amarillo and will move into southern Kansas Saturday. The storm will help to lift a warm front north along with deep tropical moisture. The nocturnal jet will give all of this a boost and additional thunderstorms are possible later tonight. Stronger storms could also produce moderate size hail.
Conditions will quickly jump from spring to summer as a huge ridge of high pressure builds east of the Ozarks. Extremely hot air will surge north from Texas. Highs in Texas today are in the low 100s! Texas has also been in an extreme drought. It will not take much of a southwest wind to get the hot air to push into the Ozarks. I would not be surprised to see 90 degree readings over the next week. There is a chance for isolated storms on Tuesday but should be mostly dry otherwise.
