Happy Thursday!

Our frigid fall pattern isn’t over yet. The area did enjoy a brief reprieve with highs well into the 40s Thursday, but this was compliments of westerly winds ahead of another strong cold front.

The cold front will usher in much colder air and it will also come with cloud cover and a chance for light snow or flurries Thursday night into Friday. The risk for snow tonight will sweep southeast across Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas with a risk for light snow or flurries lingering south of the state line through much of Friday. Some areas could get a light dusting out of this latest round of wintry weather.

A frigid Friday is in store with many areas not making it above freezing.

The temperature turnaround will get underway over the weekend. Saturday and Sunday are shaping up to be bright and still on the cold side. Morning lows will be in the upper teens and low 20s with afternoon highs near 40° Saturday and well into the 40s Sunday.

The approach to Thanksgiving will come with climbing temperatures and sunshine. Afternoon highs will be in the 50s with some areas possibly hitting 60° Tuesday and Wednesday.

A storm will move into the middle of the country by Thanksgiving, leading to increasing clouds Wednesday with showers moving in Wednesday night.

Thanksgiving is looking cool and wet with showers sweeping through the area. Black Friday looks cold and breezy with clouds clearing out.
