Another beautiful fall day with high temperatures that hovered around the 70-degree mark. Springfield came just short at 69, still incredible for the middle of November. This great day will transition into a wonderful nice as overnight lows will be in the mid-40s. Dry air persists in the region causing an elevated fire danger before moisture returns late tomorrow.
Enjoy these warm temperatures while they last because a cold front will be arriving soon. To start the day tomorrow, the warm weather trend will continue with temps near 70. Winds will be gusty at 10-20 mph. Sunny to start the morning, however, clouds will increase in the afternoon.
Cold front passage will occur Friday morning around sunrise. Some sprinkles and light scattered showers may occur overnight Thursday, but generally not expecting substantial precipitation.
Much cooler temperatures for Friday, upper 50s, with clearing skies and a north wind at 10 to 15 mph.
The weekend isn’t looking too bad with temperatures in the low 60s with more sun than clouds overall and lighter winds. Our next storm system is staying on track to reach the Ozarks late Sunday night providing rain chances through Monday and into Tuesday of next week.
The rain should clear out by Tuesday which is great news for any Thanksgiving travel plans. Speaking of Thanksgiving, expect to see cold and quiet conditions. High temperatures will fall between 44-55 degrees with overnight lows that may dip below freezing.
