A frontal boundary is expected to move into the Ozarks and slowly move southward today. Thunderstorms will continue to be possible through the day and into tonight. Areas that see sunshine this afternoon will quickly warm into the 90s. It will be warmest west today and cooler to the east. Some locations in the western Ozarks could warm to near 100 degrees.

There will likely be some storms on the radar overnight and into early tomorrow morning. Tomorrow afternoon looks nice with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 90s as surface high pressure slides southward. There will still be a chance for some storms, however, in Arkansas closer to the frontal boundary. We can expect to see storms again on Monday with a better chance on Tuesday when an upper level disturbance tracks over the area.

The rest of the workweek should be dry with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will remain above average in the 90s through midweek before cooling into the 80s for highs by Friday and next weekend.
