Good evening! Tonight we're continuing to watch clouds and showers stream into the Ozarks. We're not expecting heavy rain or even thunderstorms with this system, but most areas will get wet. Chilly temperatures overnight and to start the day could be mixed with a bit of sleet or a wet snowflake. No snow accumulation is expected just yet though. Rain is forecast again early Sunday and Monday as a series of disturbances ride the jet stream. Highs will remain in the mid to upper 40s with lows in the 30s. Again both days, we could see a wet snowflake in the mix, but not accumulating snow.
A strong cold front is still forecast to move across the Ozarks during the middle of next week. There are vast timing issues between the global models right now, but one thing is consistent: it's about to get cold in the Ozarks! A bit of very light snow is also possible behind the passage of the cold front. While the chance for snowflakes sticking with this system look better than this weekend, any accumulation will be minor, amounting to just a dusting. Very cold temperatures along with strong winds will be the headlines for the second half of the workweek. Highs for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will range from the mid 20s Thursday to lower 30s both Wednesday and Friday. Lows will drop into the teens both Thursday and Friday mornings.
