Showers and thunderstorms are currently marching east across the Ozarks. Storms have already weakened, but a few lightning strikes and gusty winds are still possible. The line will push east to Hwy. 63 by 1 to 2 am with the rain exiting the area ahead of sunrise.
Colder air will flood in behind the front with temperatures by sunrise in the 40s. Veterans Day looks bright and breezy with highs in the 50s.
The next chance for showers will come early Friday as a stronger cold front sweeps across the area. The risk of rain will mainly be south of the interstate and should clear out shortly after sunrise. Skies will brighten later in the morning before giving way to some clouds later in the day as cold air pours in. Highs on Friday will be in the mid to upper 40s with gusty winds making it feel even colder.
A freeze will follow for Saturday morning with temperatures dipping to some of the chilliest levels yet with upper 20s common. Saturday will remain cold with increasing clouds and highs in the 40s.
Another clipper will dive southeast through the region driving another cold front through Sunday. There will be a shot for showers on Sunday along with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will remain chilly.
