Tuesday Evening May 22nd – T-Storm Chances Moving Back In

Good Tuesday evening, everyone. Thankfully, we kept everything nice, quiet and warm for today. After we saw the patchy AM fog, we saw partly sunny skies throughout the day. With the Joplin Regional Airport checking in with a high of 87° today, that makes for yet another day with temperatures running above normal. The radar below has shown a scattering of t-storms just south of our area. A few may skirt across our far southern counties, but most spots will stay dry going into the evening and overnight…

It’ll be a mild night with lows dropping back into the middle 60s. Even though we’ll stay quiet overall for tonight, we still have quite a bit of moisture from the rain over the past several days. Combine that with a light breeze, expect patchy fog to get going again late tonight and into Wednesday morning…

On top of that, we’ll have the front that worked through a few days ago lift back north and hang around the area…

The result of that? We’ll have partly sunny skies throughout the day with pop-up scattered t-storms for your Wednesday afternoon…

Since this isn’t an organized system, severe weather chances for Wednesday are pretty low. Some strong t-storms could be possible with some hail and wind, but we’re not expecting any big severe weather. Despite the returning t-storm chances, we’ll stay warm with highs in the middle 80s…

How does Thursday look? It looks like Mother Nature will hit the repeat button. We’ll stay partly sunny and warm with afternoon pop-up scattered t-storms across the area. Afternoon highs will bounce back into the middle 80s once again…

We’ll continue to see our front stalled out across the area going into the coming holiday weekend…

That means we’ll continue our slow warming trend going into the holiday weekend with scattered t-storm chances each and everyday. Friday, Saturday, Sunday… We’ll have highs pushing near 90°. On top of that, chances for scattered pop-up t-storms will stick with us…

The same holds true for Memorial Day. We’ll have highs pushing into the upper 80s under partly sunny skies. With the afternoon heating and that front still around, we can’t rule out some isolated pop-up t-storms…

Beyond the holiday weekend, we’ll keep t-storm chances going due to an eventual wave out west and a possible tropical system trying to work out of the Gulf of Mexico. A lot to watch over the next several days, but it’s rain chances we’ll take before we head into the drier summer months.

Have a good evening and a great Wednesday!
