Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Arctic air is flowing into the Ozarks this afternoon.  Sunshine this afternoon will eventually give way to a clear evening sky and falling temperatures.  Lows will drop to the mid and upper single digits tonight.  Cloud cover after midnight will keep things from getting out of control but cold nonetheless.  

Clouds will dominate the day and hold highs to the low 20s.  Moisture will be on the increase Saturday along with slowly warming temperatures.  

Light snow will break out Saturday evening and a couple of inches accumulation is possible especially for our northern counties.  The snow will likely change to freezing rain by Sunday morning.  The ice accumulation should not be substantial but will make for tricky travel to church.  

The freezing rain then changes to rain during the day.  Light showers are possible Monday with a bit of freezing rain possible for our northern counties.  Heavy rain is likely Tuesday as highs soar into the upper 50s.  a little bit of light snow is then possible Wednesday as cold air returns to the Ozarks.  

Don’t expect to see the sun until late next week.  I want to end on a positive note and as of right now the first weekend in March looks good.
