Steady as she goes in the weather world but not forever

Steady as she goes in the weather world but not forever

The manageable weather story continues today with a decent amount of heat and limited storms.
We're still dominated by a ridge of high pressure to our east. It's working to keep temperatures up and most storms down. There are a few thunderstorms late this afternoon that have developed west of Poinsett county in Arkansas and south of Quitman county in Mississippi but nothing too nasty. Heavy rain, lightning and small hail are your biggest issues with these slow moving storms. They have been driven up by the heating of the day and as such, once the sun goes down after 8pm they'll fizzle out. Monday through Wednesday our storm chance remains very limited and the heat continues as highs hover in the low 90s; lows will be summery in the 70s. Thursday through the weekend a cold front will slide into the Midsouth. It'll bring with it a higher chance at storms starting Thursday afternoon, lasting through Saturday. The details are still a little fuzzy with it being so far out but the set up does suggest there may be a few stronger thunderstorms with wind, hail and lightning. We'll have a better idea as we get closer, just know your storm chance is higher by Thursday. The front will be east of us by the latter part of the weekend bringing storms to an end and slightly more comfortable air.

Enjoy your Sunday!
