Monday, January 14 Overnight Forecast

News

The clouds this time of the year can be tough to clear out, and we’ve certainly seen our fair share of cloudy days.  Winds will become more southwesterly tonight, picking up on Tuesday and should be enough to finally push the cloud cover out of the Ozarks.  This will also open the door to warmer weather.  The warmth will give way to our biggest blast of cold of the season this weekend.

For tonight, we’ll find clouds hanging around.  Temperatures won’t change much as a result with lows near 30°.  A Dense Fog Advisory has been posted for West Central Missouri for areas from Stockton, MO, east through Humansville, MO, and north.  Visibilities in the advisory area will likely drop below a mile by morning with the risk of some freezing fog that could lead to some black ice.

The clouds will finally feel the effects of stronger southwesterly winds and warmer air on Tuesday.  This should be enough to finally erode away the low clouds from west to east.  Temperatures will range from the low 50s southwest to mid-40s closer to Rolla.

A weak front will drop in from the north on Wednesday stalling over Central Missouri.  South of the front we’ll find mild January weather with highs in the low to mid-50s and partly to mostly cloudy skies.  Near and north of the front it will be cloudier and chillier.

A weak storm will move through early Thursday bringing a round of light rain to the Ozarks.  Clouds will hang around through the day with temperatures holding steady in the low to mid-40s.

We’ll wrap up the week with partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper 40s.

Temperatures throughout the week really aren’t too bad for mid-January.  Enjoy it, a much colder pattern is taking shape.  This will make for a more consistently cold stretch of weather from late January into February.  A bitter blast of cold this weekend will lead the way to this colder pattern.

The arctic blast will be led by a storm early Saturday.  There will be a chance for rain before sunrise Saturday, switching over to light snow Saturday morning as very cold air spreads south.  The amounts of snow may be light, but with the rapidly dropping temperatures, it very well could impact travel on Saturday into Saturday evening.  Temperatures will drop from around freezing near sunrise, falling through the 20s with wind chills dropping into the single digits.  Temperatures will plummet Saturday night as the arctic air feeds in with lows in the single digits Sunday morning.  Sunshine returns on Sunday, but temperatures will likely only warm into the upper teens and low 20s for highs.  The cold will ease on Monday after bitterly cold morning temperatures.  Highs in the afternoon should be in the low to mid-30s.
