NEXT SYSTEM TO BRING WINTER WEATHER
Temperatures should reach the mid 30s in Missouri to near 40 degrees in Arkansas with some sunshine and a few clouds this afternoon. Winds will be light out of a southerly direction ahead of an approaching upper level disturbance.
That upper level system will move out of the northwest and over the Ozarks by tomorrow. Ahead of that feature we will have an opportunity for some winter weather starting tonight. The temperature profile through the lower layers of the atmosphere will support a chance for a light mixture of precipitation for the southwestern half of the Ozarks, including Springfield, tonight.
HIGHEST ACCUMULATIONS NORTHEAST
Further northeast here in the Ozarks, precipitation should be mainly snow tonight and tomorrow. It is in those locations that look to see the highest amount of snowfall accumulations through Sunday. Consequently, a Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect tonight through tomorrow from St. Clair County southeast through Howell County and points eastward for the possibility of 1-3" of snow. The rest of the Ozarks could see some minor snowfall accumulations with a chance for light snow tomorrow.
COLD WEEK AHEAD
Beyond the weekend there does not appear to be any good chances for precipitation through the workweek. We could see some flurries under mostly cloudy skies on both Monday and Wednesday as a few more upper level disturbances move over the region. Otherwise, it will remain cold with highs mainly in the 30s.
