Whew… it is another cold morning across the Ozarks. Records were broken this morning smashing records as old as 105 years! Springfield hit 21 degrees breaking the old record of 26 degrees from 1917. Joplin, West Plains, and Rolla/Vichy broke record lows as well.
The area of low pressure bringing the cold weather to the Ozarks the last two days is moving east, taking the unseasonably cold weather along with it. We will see temperatures warm little by little into the weekend, as we will see the 80s once again.
As we move closer to the weekend, southerly winds will really start to pick up. The strong winds from the south will help to bring warm air back into the Ozarks. By the end of the weekend, our chances for rain will start to increase as well. It’s looking like Monday-Wednesday will be the time period most likely for rain.
