Morning downpours soaked parts of the area again today adding to heavy totals from Wednesday. This left many areas drenched with 1 to 3″ over the past two days. The drenching dried up some with an afternoon filled with sunshine and temperatures in the 70s.
Temperatures will slide overnight as fall air really starts to flow into the Ozarks with temperatures dipping into the upper 40s in many areas by morning.
We’re looking at jacket weather Friday with temperatures at their warmest around midday before a final cold front pushes into the Ozarks along with a round of clouds. Breezy northwest winds and temperatures falling into the 50s will be the finishing touches to our most fallish day yet.
Friday night will be dry with light northwest winds under a cloudless sky, near-perfect conditions for a cold night. Temperatures Saturday morning will be in the mid to upper 30s with patches of frost likely across parts of the area and a wind chill around 30 degrees. Saturday will be jacket weather with temperatures topping out right around 60 degrees.
Another chance for frost on Saturday night and then we become warmer Sunday around 70 degrees. Temperatures will gradually climb through the middle of next week. Look for the next storm to soak the area around Thursday of next week.
