The third round of winter yuck is now moving east of the Ozarks. Partial clearing may take place tonight north of I-44. South of the interstate the cloud cover should hang around. Thus, overnight lows will settle to the 13-18 degree range.

Friday looks like a nice but chilly day. A weak cool front will drop south of the Ozarks and bring a north wind. High temperatures should be in the upper 30s to near 40.

Strong south winds then take shape for the weekend and beyond. Some fog is possible as the ice field quickly melts. A partly cloudy sky is forecast Saturday with a high in the upper 40s. Wind gusts will be in the 20-30 mph range. The same is true for Sunday. Temperatures should be a bit warmer with highs in the mid 50s.

A reading of 60 is possible Monday as the next storm gets organized out west. Strong south winds will not only bring in warm air but also higher humidity. Rain and a few thunderstorms are possible next Tuesday. There is a tiny chance this rain could end as a bit of light snow as cold air follows the storm.
