Windy and dangerous fire conditions persisted across the region on Sunday with multiple grass fires. A big change is coming within the next few days as a big storm system gathers strength in the Rocky Mountains and pulls out into the Plains on Monday. This storm will also pull in tropical moisture from the remnants of a hurricane that hit Mexico’s west coast.
Storms will be developing by Monday morning as a cold front moves in from the NW. Some storms could be heavy with downpours.
During the day Monday, scattered storms with heavy rain will move across the region as the front makes its way across the area.
Tuesday morning will see cooler conditions with off and on rain especially in the morning.
Tuesday afternoon will see the rain coming to an end from west to east with cooler air filtering in from the NW.
By Wednesday morning, much cooler and drier air will allow lows to drop into the 30’s.
Rainfall totals from this next system will be generous and should help put a dent in the ongoing exceptional drought conditions across the region. Heaviest amounts should be in NW AR into South Central Missouri.
