Rain is now showing up on radar across southern Missouri and Arkansas. The rain will continue to push to the northeast this evening. The rain will transition over to light freezing rain and light snow.

The main area of accumulation should be north of highway 60. Snow totals will range from a half inch to nearly two inches. Springfield will be in the lower end of this range with the higher totals centered along highway 32 from Stockton to Lebanon.

Temperatures tonight will ride the freezing line. Road temperatures have been in the mid 30’s today or warmer. Most of the roads tonight should remain in good shape however a few slick spots may develop so watch bridges and overpasses.

The snow ends early Wednesday with the low clouds hanging around for maybe a couple of days. The temperatures range for Thursday should be near 28/37. Slightly warmer weather is possible on Friday as sun begins to break through the clouds. 31 to 42 look’s to be Friday’s range.

Sunshine and warmer weather looks likely this weekend. Saturday’s highs should warm to the lower 50’s with Sunday getting to the mid 60’s.

The forecast for early next week is challenging. A cold front approaches the Ozarks and a small bit of rain is forecast. The increasing cloud cover should hold highs back in the upper 50’s to low 60’s Monday.

The front then slides across the area Tuesday sending temperatures on a free fall. The morning temperature Tuesday should be around 40 but could fall to the 20’s by afternoon. Wind chills next Tuesday could dive into the teens or single digits depending on the arrival of the cold air.
