A beautiful but chilly day across the Ozarks! Temperatures this afternoon warmed to the low 40’s but this is still well below average. Clear and not as cold tonight with lows in the low to mid 20’s.
A mostly sunny sky is forecast Saturday with highs in the mid 50’s. South winds will be increasing as a storm develops off to the west.
Rain overspreads the Ozarks Sunday morning. The combination of rain and a strong southeast wind should hold highs in the upper 40’s to low 50’s. Rainfall amounts may run into the one to two inch range which would cause some localized flooding.
The rain tapers off Monday. Temperatures should still be seasonal with lows in the low 40’s and highs near 50. A fast moving Clipper system then brings a chance of light snow to the Ozarks late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Right now minor accumulations are possible. Highs Tuesday should again be in the 40’s but then dive to the 30’s for Wednesday and Thursday.
A slight warm up is forecast heading into the following weekend. The super long range has another round of cold weather visiting the Ozarks the first week of March. It is far too early to say just how cold this will be.
