Midday Update:

Drier air has been working in behind the storm system that brought snow to the Ozarks yesterday. That has made for quite the chilly night as clouds have decreased and winds have lightened up. Temps will start off in the 20s and 30s with records likely broken across many communities this morning. The old record of 28° for Springfield on Wednesday was set back in 1918 and we’re expecting the middle 20s. Sunshine but chilly conditions hold for mid-week with highs climbing back into the lower 50s. More clouds develop this afternoon as a weak clipper-system slides by to our northeast but I’m not expecting any moisture across the viewing area. We could break another record low tomorrow morning but it will be a little closer. We’ll awaken to temps closer to the freezing mark which is still well below average. Clouds thicken up once again Thursday ahead of our next storm system, which is slated to arrive on Thursday night into Friday. This wave does look to bring thunderstorms thanks to a little more instability in the atmosphere. Showers will likely linger throughout much of Saturday before the rain clears during the evening. High pressure builds back in to end the weekend bringing a return to milder temps and the sunshine. Highs surge back into the low to mid-70s Sunday under lots of sunshine with the quieter weather holding into early next week. Monday is looking gorgeous for this time of year with temps rising back into the 70s and even 80s along with plenty of sunshine. Our next front looks to move in late Tuesday into the middle of next week which could possibly bring a round of strong to severe storms. This is something we’ll be keeping tabs on closely so stay tuned!

Have a great day!
