THE REMAINS OF THE WIDESPREAD SOAKING RAIN THAT MOVED ACROSS THE  
REGION THIS MORNING IS PUSHING SOUTH INTO SOUTHEASTERN MISSOURI  
AND NORTHERN ARKANSAS AT THIS HOUR, WITH FILTERED SUN BEHIND THE  
RAIN. TEMPERATURES FOR MOST OF THE AREA HAVE REMAINED COOL, WITH  
READINGS GENERALLY IN THE 80S. THE EXCEPTION IS FAR WESTERN  
MISSOURI AND SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS, WHERE READINGS ARE AROUND 90.  
 
WHILE THE RAIN IS PUSHING SOUTH OF THE AREA, THE SYNOPTIC FRONT  
REMAINS TO OUR NORTH. AS OF 2 PM, THE FRONT WAS AROUND THE US 54  
CORRIDOR, AND SLOWLY MOVING SOUTH. THE BOUNDARY IS SHOWING UP  
NICELY ON VISIBLE SATELLITE AS AN AREA OF AGITATED CU, AND IT'S  
POSSIBLE THAT A FEW ADDITIONAL SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOP  
ALONG THE FRONT AS IT MOVES SOUTH TONIGHT. COVERAGE SHOULD BE  
SPOTTY AT BEST.  
 
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN WARM TONIGHT, WITH MUGGY AIR REMAINING IN  
THE AREA. LOW STRATUS SEEMS PROBABLE BEHIND THE FRONT TONIGHT, AND  
A LITTLE PATCHY FOG ISN'T OUT OF THE QUESTION, ESPECIALLY ALONG  
AND JUST NORTH OF I-44.  
 
DRIER AIR WILL FINALLY START TO FILTER INTO THE AREA FRIDAY, WITH  
DEWPOINTS FALLING INTO THE MID 60S BY EVENING. TEMPERATURES ON  
FRIDAY WILL BE COOLER DESPITE CLEARING SKIES, WITH HIGHS IN THE  
MID 80S.  
   
LONG TERM
 
(FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY)  
ISSUED AT 240 PM CDT THU JUL 27 2017  
 
THE WEEKEND AND EARLY PART OF NEXT WEEK CONTINUE TO LOOK WONDERFUL  
BY LATE JULY STANDARDS, WITH HIGHS IN THE 80S AND LOW HUMIDITY.  
LOWS WILL BE DOWN RIGHT COOL SATURDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHTS, WITH  
READINGS FALLING INTO THE UPPER 50S TO AROUND 60.  
 
DRY WEATHER AND SEASONABLY COOLER TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE  
THROUGH AT LEAST MID WEEK, AS NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT AND HIGH  
PRESSURE AT THE SURFACE REMAIN IN CONTROL. TEMPERATURES WILL  
INCREASE A BIT BY THE END OF THE WEEK, BUT SHOULD STAY AT OR JUST  
BELOW AVERAGE. RAIN CHANCES MAY RETURN BY LATE WEDNESDAY INTO  
THURSDAY, THOUGH THIS POTENTIAL REMAINS UNCLEAR AT THIS TIME.
