Sunny first half of the weekend, slick spots on Sunday

Sunny first half of the weekend, slick spots on Sunday.

Our Arctic high pressure has moved to the south and east, kicking a south wind and warmer temperatures for parts of the today. Mostly sunny, high 40 degrees in Springfield. Expect colder 20's & 30's north, lower 40's south.



Tonight, mostly clear and cold with lows in the teens.

Tomorrow, mostly sunny, a bit breezy, and above freezing. Highs in the middle to upper 30's.

Sunday will start with temperatures in the middle to upper 20's, and then warm to the upper 30's in the afternoon. That will be crucial to determining placement and accumulation of wintry precipitation.

A low pressure tracks through the Ozarks Sunday. With precipitation starting early Sunday, while temperatures are still at or below freezing, some of it could come down as a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and flakes...mainly along and east of HWY 65. By the afternoon we'll warm up above freezing, putting us all with a steady, cold rain. As rain lingers overnight as temperatures drop below freezing again, we could see a wintry mix return.



Most of the day will have the cold rain, totals ~0.5-1" expected. As far as the ice, expect a minor glaze less than 0.1" east of HWY 65. It will be enough to at least create slick spots on the roads so be careful!

Skies clear on Monday. Temperatures turn mild with lower 50's Tuesday and Wednesday. Our next chance for a rain/snow mix comes on Thursday.
