Spring continues to make appearances in the pattern with a nice dose of spring temperatures today. The mild streak will continue the rest of the week, but it will come with waves of showers.
The pattern will feature a stalled front north of the Ozarks with a steady feed of moisture into the area. Weak upper-level storms will squeeze some shower and thunderstorm activity out at times tonight through Friday.
This evening looks dry, but spotty showers are possible later tonight, exiting before sunrise.
More showers are possible Thursday, especially along and north of Hwy. 60 during the afternoon into the overnight. It looks like there may be enough breaks in the clouds to push temperatures into the low 70s in many places.
Friday will feature mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures with a few showers at times during the day. Rain chances will head higher Friday night as the front finally begins to make a move through the region.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will likely develop with a few stronger storms possible Friday night. It’s a scenario that will feature limited instability, but plenty of wind energy to organize thunderstorms. Right now, a few stronger storms with hail are expected.
The front will push through near sunrise with temperatures falling from the low 50s back through the 40s. Rain will remain possible during the morning tapering off to some patchy drizzle during the afternoon.
Skies will clear Saturday night with a light freeze expected Sunday morning. Temperatures will remain chilly throughout the day with mostly sunny skies and highs near 50°.
Another freeze is expected Monday morning with a warming trend beginning as afternoon readings warm into the mid-50s. Highs in the 60s are expected Tuesday and Wednesday with the pattern remaining bright and quiet.
