Storm Team Forecast Discussion

In a word DELIGHTFUL! Today has been a wonderful day across the Ozarks with highs back in the upper 50s. Tonight looks good too with lows dropping back to the upper 30s.

Strong south/southeast winds will develop later tonight and really get cranking on Wednesday. Gusts could top out in excess of 35 mph. The fire danger will be increasing mainly west of Springfield. Open burning is discouraged until later this week. Highs on Wednesday will reach the 65-70 range over most of the Ozarks.

Slightly cooler conditions will be felt in our eastern counties. A cold front comes through the region Wednesday night and will knock temperatures back to a more seasonal level with readings in the 40s to end the work week.

A real mess is possible on Saturday. Like yesterday models are all over the place. I think it is still too early to make a firm call on the weekend forecast. My gut feeling is we will have a cold rain with a mix of sleet or snow during the day and little accumulation. Once the sun goes down a bit more snow may begin to fall and accumulations at least north of Springfield is possible. South of Springfield probably not so much! It will definitely get colder for several days. If we do get measurable snow then much colder weather is possible.
