The pattern since Friday of last week has been a winter-like one with quick-hitting rounds of wintry weather. We saw another one of those slip through today with snow showers sweeping across parts of Central Missouri.
There may be more of that Thursday night through Friday, and there will certainly be more cold weather.
Thursday will offer up a chance to briefly warm up as winds become westerly ahead of the next cold front. Slightly warmer air will nose east ahead of the front with highs in the 40s. A lot of high cloudiness will push into areas north of Hwy. 60 making for partly sunny skies and potentially muting the warm-up a little.
As the next shot of cold air moves in Thursday night, a band of light snow may try to develop across Missouri. The band of light snow or flurries will push southeast throughout the night, fading as it moves into Northern Arkansas. There will likely be additional snow showers or flurries on Friday, mainly near and south of the state line.
Also, cloudy skies and a fresh shot of very cold air moving in may keep afternoon highs at or below freezing across much of the area, a somewhat rare feat in November.
A cold and bright weekend will follow with a warming trend getting underway Sunday.
As we progress into Thanksgiving week, temperatures look to warm back to normal levels. A storm moving into the middle of the country might make for wet travel Wednesday into Thanksgiving.
