Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Good morning! We're starting off in the 30s in spots again this morning, but one more mild day is in store for this stretch before a big cold front brings big changes for Friday. Highs will reach the mid 60s in central Missouri to a few low 70s in Arkansas today. Clouds will increase and we may even see a few sprinkles. The front will have little noticeable impact today when it first moves through, but the cold air starts coming our way tonight. Starting temperatures on Friday will be in the 30s and 40s not unlike what we're seeing this morning, but highs will barely move. I expect much of the region to stay in the 40s and we'll have a gusty north wind on top of it. A hard freeze is likely nearly area-wide on Saturday morning. We'll warm a bit by Sunday, with rain still expected for the second half of Monday into Tuesday.
