Soaked in some areas, slighted in others. All of the Ozarks saw some rain, but for many, it wasn’t much. There were pockets of heavier totals though, Osceola reported more than an inch, same for parts of Northwest Arkansas. Springfield picked up 0.15″ since Sunday night, bringing the monthly total to just over half an inch. So, we’ve still got a lot of work today to catch up to “average”.
The damp weather also came with cool temperatures with highs around 50° today. This bucks the running November theme of above-normal temperatures with more chilly weather in store over the next week.
Light showers or areas of patchy drizzle will remain possible tonight into Tuesday morning, but it looks like there will be opportunities for peeks of sun later in the day. Clouds will thicken back up with additional light showers possible heading into Tuesday evening. Clouds and colder air moving in will keep temperatures from warming much with highs mainly in the mid to upper 40s.
Travelers Wednesday will encounter cold but dry weather early in the day. Early clouds will exit off to the east with a bright and chilly afternoon expected with highs in the upper 40s.
Sunshine and milder weather is on tap for Thanksgiving. We’ll go from frosty early to turkeyrific during the afternoon as temperatures approach 60°.
Shoppers Friday into the weekend will definitely encounter chillier temperatures. In fact, the weekend might even come with a risk of rain or snow Saturday night into early Sunday. What’s more certain is a cold pattern for the weekend with highs in the 40s.
