Good morning, and happy Friday! The radar is full this morning and we have primarily light rain or freezing rain. There’s a lot of pink, indicating freezing rain—but temperatures are hovering right at freezing in many areas. As a result, we have some icing on elevated surfaces, but the roads remain just wet. All of this precipitation continues to move slowly northeast and it will continue for most of the day. It will be light for the most part, but occasionally will be moderate. Temperatures will not change much until late afternoon, but a bump of a degree or two above freezing seems likely. The “warmest” air will be northwest Arkansas, with the cold hanging on the longest in the east and northeast parts of the Ozarks. Rain will become a little heavier this evening and early tonight as a cold front approaches, and temperatures are going to warm up rather significantly. We should see readings around 50° by the very early hours of Saturday morning, and lower to perhaps middle 50s in Arkansas. However, the cold front will come through before dawn, bringing us back down by 7 am. It makes it tough to know what to put on the forecast graphic today since the timing will be really weird. We’ll see limited impacts from icing today given the temperature, but I don’t expect widespread problems. Wind gusts still look impressive at times in Missouri today with 30+ mph possible. Saturday will bring dropping temperatures in the morning, but with sun returning we’ll recover to around 40° in Springfield. Another weak front will drop through on Sunday, and this will make Monday the coldest day of the forecast. We’ll bounce back to lower 40s by Tuesday and Wednesday, with some more rain (and perhaps a wintry mix) late Wednesday into Thursday.
