Classic summery feel on Saturday; more storms Sunday

Mother nature delivered another classic summery day in the Midsouth Saturday. A cold front gets close Sunday leading to more storms.
A few storms have bubbled up across the Midsouth Saturday afternoon but not many; most have stayed north and west of us. Afternoon temperatures have been running the entire summer scale from the 70s to the 90s with patchy cloudiness. A cold front is sagging ever closer to us; currently it's splitting Missouri in half and it's a large reason for the storms in Arkansas and southeast Missouri. These storms are tending to meander without much direction; some are going southwest, some are going east/northeast. Regardless of direction, our computer model guidance shows most of this action falling apart after sunset (8:12pm) but be prepared for a shower or two during late night plans. All storms are done by midnight at the latest and we've got a quiet night from there with lows in the low 70s. Sunday, the front gets closer (I can feel the suspense) giving us a decent (50-60%) storm chance in the afternoon. The set up doesn't scream severe weather but heavy rain, lightning and small hail appear to be threats. When/if it's not storming on you, it'll be plenty warm with highs in the low 90s. One disturbance after another, after another will lead to off and on rain for the first half of next week. Scattered to numerous showers and storms will pop up Monday afternoon through Wednesday; your rain chance is 40%-60%. Another front ends things for the most part with just isolated showers Thursday through next weekend. Despite all the clouds and rain expected, highs will still stay near 90°

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
