Weather

Breezy and warm today through Valentine’s Day, wintry weather returns Friday —

After a cold start, highs will be warm this afternoon. Strong southerly winds take control today, with gusts to 35 mph possible. That will usher in a warm air mass into the Ozarks. Despite a few high clouds, temperatures will soar into the upper 50’s and lower 60’s! 60 degrees for a high in Springfield.

With the mild, dry air and gusty southerly winds, an elevated fire danger exists mainly for the western Ozarks, no outdoor burning!

We stay mild and breezy overnight tonight with continued gusts to 35 mph and lows around 40 degrees.

Tomorrow will stay breezy and warm. Valentine’s Day will feature a few more clouds with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon, warm highs in the lower 60’s, and breezy westerly winds gusting to 35 mph.

A cold front starts to squeeze the area in late Thursday, with much colder air arriving Thursday night into Friday morning. Lows will drop back into the 20’s.

By Friday afternoon, a weak upper-level wave will pass along the front, bringing a quick hitting shot of a wintry mix. Snow, sleet, and freezing rain is likely from Springfield and areas north, a cold rain to the south.

This system is quick hitting, not leaving a big window for significant ice accumulation, but slick roads are likely. Keep that in mind on Friday! 

Highs will flirt with freezing in the afternoon.

Saturday will be dry in the afternoon but cold. Mostly cloudy with highs in the 30’s. Another quick-hitting wintry shot comes through overnight Saturday into early Sunday. A wintry mix is possible overnight with flurries lingering through Sunday morning.

Highs stay in the 30’s through early next week with another shot of snow by Tuesday.
