Slight Warm Up This Weekend, Bitter Blast Next Week —
Friday morning, we reached a low of 9° in Springfield! Temperatures rebounded a little into the lower 30’s as highs across the Ozarks. Through the evening and overnight a flurry cannot be ruled out as a disturbance moves east from Oklahoma, little impact and accumulation are expected. Overnight temperatures will drop into the lower and middle 20’s with decreasing cloud coverage.
Saturday, temperatures will make their way into the lower and middle 40’s under a mix of sun and clouds. Overnight temperatures will drop into the middle and upper 20’s.
Sunday looks to be the best day this week with temperatures topping off in the middle and upper 40’s under mostly sunny skies. Overnight temperatures will drop into the lower 30’s with increasing cloud cover.
Monday, we will start off warmer with temperatures in the lower and middle 40’s and mostly cloudy conditions. Through the day a cold front with start to sag into the Ozarks. This cold front will bring a chance for some light rain. Temperatures will tumble through the day and that light rain will likely mix with snow. Little to no impact or accumulation is expected, however, there could be some slick roads as the temperatures plummet. Overnight lows will once again be in the upper single digits and lower teens.
Tuesday, the good news is we will see more sunshine, the bad news is highs will only top off in the upper 20’s. Overnight lows will once again drop into the upper single digits and lower teens.
Wednesday looks much like Tuesday with temperatures in the 20’s and overnight lows in the teens.
Something to note: forecast models are in some disagreeing with when/if the bitterly cold weather moves out or if temperatures stay bitterly cold. The main point is that whether this air mass moves out of not, temperatures will still be below normal for this time of year. We will continue to update the forecast as time gets closer.
