Because it's always a good time to check in on some nifty nighttime predators with wings... make sure you take a peak in on the latest brood of Barn Owls on this live web cam!

ONE MORE WARM (BUT WET) DAY 

A healthy and strengthening area of upper-level low pressure will move into the High Plains tomorrow helping to increase cloud cover and warming winds in the Ozarks.  

And as the saying goes: A wind from the South has rain in its mouth.  And it will Monday.  Highs should warm into the mid 50s even as clouds increase and rain begins to fall to your West.

The cold front will arrive late Monday shutting off the rain and any storms.  Then the cold air will get a turn to create precipitation over the Ozarks through Tuesday.  Just like last time, most won't see much in the way of measurable snow.  However, just like last time... there's a few hours where low-level instability could add just enough lift in the atmosphere for convective snow showers.  And... just like last time... that could end up with 1/2" to 1" in the grass if you're lucky.  This won't be a widespread issue. 

Travel forecast

REGIONAL TRAVEL CHANGING FOR THE WORSE
Warming winds continues, but travel West will increase your chances of running into wetter weather earlier.  You'll have to drive fairly far to the North to encounter any big snows... Minnesota and the Dakotas will see moderate to heavy snow.


THE WEEK TO COME

KY3 Three Day Outlook

By Tuesday, lingering moisture and clouds may allow for some to see light snow showers or flurries through the day.  We'll keep the clouds through the majority of the afternoon before clearing out overnight into Wednesday.

Tuesday should be the coldest of the week with highs only in the mid 30s.

The midweek will warm and become clear once again.  A weak disturbance swings through Thursday.  Models are in disagreement about how much moisture is available for precipitation.  I think a sprinkle mixed with a flurry is reasonable at this time.  Another wave of rain and/or storms may develop into next weekend.  With that being the case, the milder and drier Friday gets the Snidely Stamp of Approval for this week!

Travel safe, happy holidays and now... Merry Christmas. =)
