24-hour forecastSatellite & RadarWind ChillAllergy IndexAlmanacGood morning! Clouds are covering much of the region this morning and radar is even picking up some showers. However, the latest weather balloon shows the air in the lower atmosphere is extremely dry and this is likely keeping any rain or snow from reaching the ground. The upper wave responsible for all of this will be moving on today and sunshine will become abundant this afternoon. We'll see a light south breeze and temperatures warming to over 50 for much of the southern half of the Ozarks, with 40s on the north side. A weak trough will turn the winds to the north tonight before they become southerly again tomorrow. Friday will be relatively warm again but clouds could thicken over the northern Ozarks and again keep temperatures there cooler. A stronger front will move in very early Saturday and send us into the deep freeze. A gusty wind will send us downhill on Saturday and we'll stay in the 30s much of next week. Lows will get as low as the middle teens by Wednesday or Thursday depending on exactly where the big ridge of high pressure ends up. There is still the chance for a few flurries or snow showers on Monday or Tuesday as a weakening upper wave moves across the plains.
