It will be a hazy, hot, humid to very humid afternoon with just some scattered cumulus clouds.  Nearly all of the area looks dry.  Only an isolated storm may pop in northern Newton, northern Jasper to northwestern Pulaski County this afternoon-evening along old outflow boundary from storms lastnight-this morning north & northwest of our area.

A plume of 75-77 dew points nosing into mainly our western counties & 71-74 dew points elsewhere will cause heat indices to run near 100 to as high as near 109.

Severe weather outbreak will take place west, northwest & north of our area today-tonight.

Line of severe storms in Illinois will be collapsing & gusting out as they move into our area late tonight.  Gusts 30-35 mph are possible as a line of some showers & t'showers pass.

This gust front/outflow boundary will be the trigger for storms (some severe) southeast of our area tomorrow.

Here, looks like some scattered showers/t'showers are possible at times (with breaks in-between) with coverage at 40-45%.  Much of the day will be muggy with highs near 82 with a southwest wind turning to the northwest.  The much less humid, cooler air should arrive by evening as winds turn to the north to northeast.

Thursday looks great with highs in the 70s to 80 & lows in the 50s to 60 not only Wednesday night-Thursday morning, but Thursday night-Friday morning.

Clouds will increase Friday as front moves back north as a warm front.  Highs Friday will run near 80 to the 80s.

It appears that some showers & storms may pass Friday night-Saturday morning & again Saturday late afternoon-evening (with a break in-between).

It will turn muggy with highs well into the 80s.

Some storms are possible Sunday afternoon-evening & again Monday afternoon-evening as warm front will continue to advance northward.  We will be bathed in muggy air with highs well into the 80s Sunday & 80s to 90 Monday.

Although a few/some spotty storms are possible next Tuesday-Wednesday, the overall trend will be for more widespread storms to shift to our north & northwest while we are bath in hot, humid to very humid weather.

Overall temperature trend is for above normal right through mid-September.  There will be an occasional cool-down, but above normal temperature domination may be with us to later September.
