Happy Thursday! Overall, January has brought mild weather to the middle part of the country. We reached 60° or higher eight times in January. If you had any doubts that it was indeed still winter, today has brought us back to reality.

Clouds may try to persist up near Lake of the Ozarks into Friday before finally clearing out. We should end the week on a bright note though with temperatures remaining chilly.

Another storm will move through this weekend with increasing clouds Saturday and a chance for rain showers by Saturday night. It looks like it will be cold enough for the rain to mix with or change over to wet snow by Sunday morning with minor accumulations possible near and north of Hwy. 60. This doesn’t look like it will be a very impactful storm from a travel perspective.

Another storm will sweep through the area sometime around Tuesday with similar results. Rain or snow will be possible before wrapping up as snow Tuesday night into Wednesday. Minor snow accumulations are on the table with this storm as well.

Waves of cold air will keep the pattern more consistently cold through the end of the month.
