Showers linger in Arkansas this morning along a mid-level frontal boundary. This showers will have roads wet for your morning commute there, but rain exits shortly. Expect dry but cloudy conditions in Arkansas after 7 AM.
Behind that front lies a north wind, highs will be cooler today in the lower 50’s. Expect a mix of sun and clouds through dismissal.
Tonight clouds increasing with cold lows in the middle 30’s.
A few showers are possible by daybreak Thursday, but we’ll continue to see increasing coverage of showers from west to east by Thursday afternoon. As a weak low pressure moves through, showers will be widespread, rain light, clouds thick, and temperatures chilly. Highs will get stuck in the middle 40’s thanks to clouds, rain, and a cold air mass on its way.
Rain will be slow to exit Thursday night, so some of the rain can change/ mix with snow as a cold Canadian air mass plunges into the Ozarks. The best chance for a few flakes will be central MO, those in southern MO/ northern AR will likely keep all rain.
Any snow accumulations will be light, slushy, and confined to grassy surfaces by Friday morning. Temperatures drop to freezing.
Clouds clear Friday afternoon as a Canadian high pressure plunges into the Ozarks. Highs get stuck in the lower 40’s despite mostly sunny skies.
Friday night into Saturday morning will be the end of the growing season as temperatures nose-dive into record territory! With clear skies, calm winds, and a cold air mass in place, lows will drop into the upper teens and lower 20’s by Saturday morning with a hard freeze expected. I’m forecasting a low of 20, the record is 17 (1960)!
Remember the kiddos, pets, plants, and pipes will need extra attention!
