A series of fast moving disturbances will race across the Ozarks over the next couple of days. Cloud cover will be on the increase tonight keeping lows a bit warmer than last night. Morning clouds will give way to sunshine on Wednesday, because of this high temperatures will be warmest out west and colder over our eastern counties. Thursday into Friday a new front moves across the Ozarks with little impact on either temperatures or precipitation.
A new storm is going to begin developing on Saturday in the Texas Panhandle. This is always a precarious location for the Ozarks as it could mean either rain or snow deepening on how cold the air is. The latest satellite shows a deep fetch of tropical moisture in the South Pacific Ocean and the storm will punch this into the central U.S. at the same time some gulf moisture will return. Right now I feel that on Sunday rain will fall in north Arkansas with mostly snow towards central Missouri. The southern part of the state will fluctuate between the two. There may be accumulating snow across our northern counties although how much is a big question mark. Snow showers are possible on Monday and Tuesday as the storm cuts off over St. Louis.
