Happy Tuesday! Today was a bit of a speedbump in a much-awaited warming trend that began on Monday. Damp weather and cloud cover didn’t allow temperatures to budge during the day. That will change overnight tonight as a warm front pushes across the Ozarks.

The setup will result in damp weather overnight with areas of fog and mist. It looks like there may even be some dense fog in areas of South Central Missouri south of I-44 and into parts of Northern Arkansas.

A few showers and isolated thunderstorms may break out near Central Missouri before morning, quickly sliding off to the east after sunrise.

Clouds and cool temperatures early Wednesday will give way to warmer and noticeably more humid weather during the afternoon. Highs in the 70s will make for one of the warmer days so far this year.

Mild and humid weather will set the stage for a wet finish to the week as a cold front slowly pushes south across the Ozarks Thursday into Friday. A few strong to severe storms may accompany the front, but heavy rain is the primary concern. Several inches of rainfall Thursday evening into Friday could lead to flooding concerns and will lock in March 2023 as a wetter-than-normal March.

We’ll get a brief break from wet weather early in the weekend before more showers move through Sunday. At least temperatures look much warmer than the past few weekends.
