Nice today, not tomorrow
Good morning! We're waking up with extremely cold temperatures across the Ozarks. Most lows are in the single digits this morning. High pressure was in control of our weather pattern overnight and will shift to the southeast of the region today. While it is still in control, we'll see mostly sunny skies with afternoon highs in the upper 30s to low 40s.
The weather will get messy tomorrow as our next system arrives bright and early for our western counties. A mixed bag of precip will occur throughout the day on Friday. Right now, it does appear that temperatures for at least a part of the afternoon will be warm enough to support rain. However a mix of freezing rain and sleet is also possible early in the day. A light glaze of ice will be possible with this system so please use extreme caution on the roadways. As temperatures drop on Friday night and Saturday morning, freezing drizzle and light snow are possible. Nothing looks to accumulate too much, but slick spots on the roads are the main concern.
Beyond this system that arrives tomorrow, the rest of the 7-day forecast is looking pretty good. High temperatures will be on the increase throughout the week and we could be in the 50s by Wednesday of next week!
