Weather for work week starting Monday, July 18!

Forsyth MO. - Here we go entering the 3rd week of July, which is climatologically the hottest week of the year for the Missouri Ozarks.

It's great timing for a massive summertime high pressure system to build over the Nation's mid section starting tomorrow and continuing through the upcoming work week.

This summertime high will cause temperatures and heat indices to soar, likely bringing some Heat Advisories to the region through most of the week.

Global computer runs are wanting to keep our far east in northwest flow around the ridge of high pressure in full "ring of fire" fashion. The may open the door for additional MCS potential next week across our eastern locations and isolated afternoon/evening pulse-type cells elsewhere.

As of the middle of July, we were still over eight inches below the 30 year average and so could use some additional rainfall before the month is out. Interestingly, there is not much happening in the way of Hurricane activity in the Atlantic. Many experts were expecting the prevailing La Nina weather pattern to fuel a surplus of these storms for 2016. So far, nada.

 Saturday, July 16 - With some of the hottest weather on tap for the coming week, with heat indexes reaching 105 and more - And, right on cue, my AC decided to give up the ghost. Swell.

The long wave and synoptic scale pattern will feature a strengthening ridge of high pressure over the region for the entire work week period. While there is an outside shot at a thunderstorm across the eastern Ozarks Tuesday afternoon, we are mainly expecting dry conditions all week.

Tuesday, July 19 - Little if any relief in sight through the weekend. If anything it will get hotter with daytime highs approaching the 100 degree mark.
