FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Colder and less windy today
Slight chance for rain tomorrow morning
Good Saturday morning to you, a cold front has pushed through the Ozarks overnight, leaving us with much cooler air and some clearing in our skies.
Today will be about 15-20 degrees cooler than yesterday with winds calming through the afternoon. Despite the cold air, it’ll be dry as high pressure moves in. Highs will hardly warm much, some areas may stay in the 30s all day but others will reach the low 40s depending on the amount of sunshine.
A weak upper level disturbance is forecast to near counties south of I-44 later tonight, which will bring mostly cloudy skies back into the area. A slight chance for a few widely scattered showers south of Highway 60 are possible through Sunday morning, some of which could turn to snowflakes given lows will be below freezing. Lows will drop into the upper 20s to low 30s.
Given the amount of dry air still present tomorrow, no snow accumulation is expected and rainfall totals remain minimal through the next 24 hours. Sunday will be slightly warmer than today with highs in the low to mid 40s.
With a stationary front to the south through the extended term, we will remain in an active weather pattern this upcoming workweek. Moisture will start to increase from south to north through Tuesday, which means most of the rain will remain south of I-44. After that, it’s looking a bit more widespread through Saturday.
Now I don’t think it’ll be nonstop heavy rain for 5 days, but pockets of heavy rain will be possible mainly in North Arkansas through the late week. Rainfall totals are registering at least a few inches of rain this week across the board, so have that umbrella handy! Temperatures will be near our average in the upper 40s to low 50s, with lows above freezing thanks to the clouds insulating some of the moisture.
Looking ahead to the following weekend there may be a good chance for rain Saturday. This is important because this is the day of the Springfield Christmas parade.
