Storm Team Forecast Discussion

The weather remains rather progressive with a series of disturbances quickly moving along in the jet stream. One such feature brought a covering of snow to our northeast counties earlier today. Tonight with a mostly clear sky temperatures will drop back to the mid 20’s.

High clouds then move back in on Thursday with temperatures staying just a few degrees below average. Another such feature runs clouds in and out of the Ozarks on Friday but the good news is it should be warmer with highs nearing 50.

Cold air then returns for Saturday pushing highs back down into the 30s. A winter mix of freezing rain, sleet, snow and rain are possible from late Sunday morning to early afternoon. Lows begin in the mid 20’s with highs reaching the upper 30s late in the day.

I am very optimistic about next week. The cold flow of air relaxes and we should see a nice warm up with highs in the 60s by mid-week.
