Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Good afternoon! Saturday was another cloudy day with highs staying in the low to mid-40s across the Ozarks. Skies stay mostly cloudy with fog developing once again overnight, especially along the Missouri/Kansas border. Temperatures will fall into the mid-30s for Sunday morning, which is still well above average for this time of year. We’ll be a little warmer Sunday with highs in the mid to upper 40s thanks to a southerly breeze. Cloud cover will hang on once again though.

Our next storm system approaches Monday with a weak cold front sparking up some showers by Monday afternoon. A stronger cold front pushes through the area Tuesday bringing rain which could switch to snow as cold air builds in behind the frontal passage. No accumulation is expected out of this. In fact, the two main forecast models are still in disagreement with exactly what this system will do so we’ll keep an eye on it the next few days. Christmas Eve will be chilly, and depending on which model is correct we could have a few flurries lingering around early Wednesday. Christmas day will be pleasant with highs reaching the lower 50s and mostly sunny skies.
