Showers and isolated thunderstorms managed to fire up along the cold front this evening, pushing across the interstate by late evening. A few severe storms did manage to develop just north of the area closer to I-70. The risk for any severe weather locally looks pretty remote at this time. Areas near and south of the state line have a slightly higher chance for severe weather where there may be a better combination of severe weather ingredients.

The line of storms will be followed by scattered showers and falling temperatures throughout the early morning hours Wednesday. We’ll be back to jacket weather by morning with temperatures settling out in the mid-40s.

Clouds will make a quick exit shortly after sunrise with a beautiful spring day on tap. Skies will remain sunny with breezy winds and highs in the low to mid-60s.

LATE WEEK COLD SNAP COULD BRING A FEW SNOWFLAKES AND A FREEZE

Colder weather will work back in Thursday and Friday as a slow-moving storm moves through the Great Lakes. Clouds will move in with the colder air Thursday with skies remaining pretty cloudy through Friday. There will even be a few light showers Thursday night into Friday and with the cold temperatures aloft, some snow is possible. Winds will be gusty both days, providing a bit more bite to the already chilly temperatures.

Skies will clear Friday evening with temperatures dropping below freezing across the Ozarks. Morning lows in the upper 20s will be fairly common and this will present a risk to any cold-sensitive plants.

TURNING WARMER AND THEN STORMIER

Temperatures will surge higher over the weekend. After a cool and sunny Saturday, we’ll find highs back in the 70s Sunday. Sunday’s warmth will come with gustier winds and a few clouds.

The warm pattern will continue into next week gradually turning wetter. This will culminate in widespread shower and thunderstorm chances Wednesday as a storm swings into the middle of the country. Severe weather chances look possible with this storm as well.
