A cold front is set to cross the Ozarks tonight. A band of showers developed well ahead of the front and is set to exit the eastern counties this evening. Partial clearing may occur this evening before clouds roll back in by morning. A few scattered snow flurries are possible Tuesday morning in Missouri with little to no accumulation expected. Very cold air will descend upon the area on strong northwest winds. Winds may top 25 mph at times holding wind chill values to the 20s for most of the day.
The Rest of the Week
The good news is that the cold air will move on quickly with moderating readings by Wednesday. The rest of the week will feature partly to mostly sunny skies and highs about average for the first of December. Next weekend promises to be mostly dry with highs around 50. The long range models continue to hint at a sizable storm for the following week. It is far too early to discuss details but I think it is well worth watching.
