Another dreary day across the Ozarks. We did get a brief window of peeks of sunshine at least, but that was followed up with another round of misty light showers Tuesday afternoon. Looking ahead, the dreary days appear to be done, at least for a few days.
Clouds this evening will gradually clear from northwest to southeast opening the door to tumbling temperatures and frosty morning conditions. There will likely be some lingering clouds near and east of Hwy. 63, but they’ll move out later in the morning. Look for a bright and chilly afternoon with light winds and afternoon highs in the upper 40s. Travel conditions look pretty good across the region too, just remember to pack a coat and have those sunglasses handy.
Clear and cold weather Wednesday night will give way to a frosty start to Thanksgiving. The day looks bright with temperatures climbing through the 50s. Afternoon highs will be near 60° and it looks picture perfect for some time outside after a Thanksgiving meal.
A cold front pushing through Thursday evening will bring chillier weather back to the area by Friday. Increasing high cloudiness and breezy winds will be the finishing touches on a cold finish to the week. Shoppers can count on cold and dry conditions on Friday and Saturday.
A weak storm is still expected to push some precipitation across the area Saturday night into early Sunday. Temperatures still look borderline, but probably sufficiently cold for some of the area (particularly closer to Central Missouri) for a changeover to light snow Saturday night. Things should wrap up early Sunday, but clouds will be tough to get rid of making for a cloudy and cold backend of the weekend.
Brighter days will return early next week.
