Day to Day Chance for Storms
South winds will help return a very tropical air mass to the Ozarks. This combined with our warm temperatures and a series of weak disturbances in the jet stream will help kick off periodic rounds of thunderstorms. Lifting mechanisms are very weak so the coverage will be limited. Because of weak lifting the storms will mainly be driven by daytime heating. Once the sun goes down the storms should die off pretty quickly. I will say that if storms can fire up then the stronger ones will be capable of producing gusty winds and small hail. The trend of day to day rain will last much of the next seven to ten days as the overall weather pattern will change little for us.
