It's been another rainy, foggy day in the Ozarks with temperatures below the seasonal averages in the low to mid 40s. Winds have been strong today too and at times have gusted over 30 mph. The cold, damp, foggy conditions will persist this evening and overnight tonight. More rainfall is expected south of I-44, closer to an area of low pressure. Some spots have already received 1-2" of rain and more is going to be possible in our southeastern counties. This is where a flood watch is in effect and will expire tomorrow. Watch for areas of high water and find another way around if you fun into some.
This storm system will pull east of the area on Saturday, but we could still have some light rain around in our eastern counties on Saturday morning. Clouds will be stubborn, but eventually clear late Saturday. We will have to watch for more ground fog on Saturday night as the sky clears. Sunday should be an enjoyable day as the sunshine returns and high temperatures will climb to the mid 50s again.
Most of next week looks nice too with above average temperatures and plenty of sunshine. Wednesday may be the only exception with cloud cover in place and a quick moving cold front. It looks like we will see some light rain on Wednesday, then dry up again for the end of the workweek.
