Wednesday, March 13 Overnight Forecast

News

A powerful storm in the Midwest is generating another round of intense wind across the middle of the country.  The Ozarks will continue to be wind-whipped through Thursday as the storm slowly lifts toward the Great Lakes.  A Wind Advisory is in effect through 7pm Thursday with gusts of 40 to 55 mph expected.  The rain is ending for most of the Ozarks, but there will be a shot at a few more showers over North Central Arkansas into South Central Missouri well after midnight.  Temperatures won’t cool off much with temperatures holding steady in the 50s tonight.

A cold front will sweep through Thursday, arriving in Springfield right around sunrise.  This will cause temperatures to slip back into the 40s where they’ll likely remain stuck the remainder of the day.  Sunshine early in the day will give way to clouds by late morning in Springfield.  Temperatures will be warmer and skies will be brighter to the southeast where it will take longer for the front to arrive.

There’s a slight chance for some light drizzle Thursday night near and north of I-44, otherwise skies will be cloudy with temperatures sliding into the 30s.

Friday will start cloudy, but skies should clear out during the afternoon.  Temperatures will remain chilly, topping out in the 40s.  Winds will remain brisk out of the northwest.

Our first nice weekend in a while will follow.  Skies will be bright and winds won’t be as strong.  Temperatures will also head higher.  The overnights will be cold with afternoon highs in the low to mid-50s Saturday and close to 60° Sunday.

The pleasant, early Spring pattern will continue into early next week.  The next shot at rain will hold off until Tuesday night.  Clouds will be on the increase Tuesday with a few showers possible overnight.  Chillier weather will follow the front for Wednesday.

The pattern looks like it will stay quiet through the remainder of next week, but a stormier pattern may take shape again over the following week.
