Thursday, January 4 Evening Forecast

Sunshine today could not push temperatures above freezing for much of Missouri, northern Arkansas warmed into the middle 30s

Partly cloudy skies this evening will give way to mostly clear skies overnight for most of the area except for the eastern Ozarks where cloud cover will remain. Some very light snow and flurries are possible for Rolla, Lake Ozark, and Fort Leonard Wood

Lows tonight fall into the teens again

15 for a low in Springfield

Sunshine again Friday with partly cloudy skies to the east and north. There will be big gradient or difference in temperatures in the Ozarks. Temperatures to the east with be stuck in the 20s while to the west temperatures will be near 40 for a high 

40 for a high in Springfield

Sunny again Saturday with highs in the middle 30s, 20s to the east.

A low-pressure system moves in from the SW Saturday night into Sunday. The forecast is a little tricky at this point. Right now it looks like we may start Sunday morning off with an icy mix of freezing rain, sleet, and rain. As temperatures warm into the afternoon, most of the precipitation should become rain, then transitioning back to an icy mix by evening as temperatures fall. An area north of HWY 60 and east of HWY 65 may not see a transition in the afternoon and stay underneath an icy mix.

We could see as much as a glazing to a .10" of ice accretion(accumulation). There still remains great uncertainty in precipitation type and transition times.

Monday we clear skies out by late afternoon with highs in the low 40s

A nice warming trend next week with temperatures warming to near 50 by Wednesday. A cold front comes through Thursday evening and may deliver another mixed bag of precipitation as it passes
