deepen today keeping temperatures around 80 degrees. Mostly sunny

Long term...(sunday through friday)

By Sunday, moisture advection will ramp up across the Central
Plains. A warm front will become established across Kansas,
becoming a trigger for showers and thunderstorms. Models have this
activity shifting into portions of the Ozarks late Sunday night
into Monday. Due to the lack of instability, severe storms are not
expected Monday through Monday night.

Temperatures will warm back into the middle and upper 80s by
Wednesday and Thursday. Southerly winds combined with full
sunshine will boost temperatures and humidity.

Weak southwest flow aloft will offer a series of weak disturbances
next weekend. This pattern has the potential to create unsettled
conditions over the 4th of July weekend.
