Wind, we've got cold, we've got rain drops, WHO could ask for anything more... Ummm hmmm let me see... I could come up with a few things... here is our forecast...
UPDATED: Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.
Some of the coldest air so far this winter is about to descend on the Ozarks. A deep low pressure system is currently forming west of Lamar and will track across Missouri tonight. As the storm deepens the winds are going to become incredibly strong out of the northwest with gusts greater than 40 mph. A few snow flurries are possible after midnight towards sunrise mainly north of Springfield. I do not expect much if any accumulation as the main system will be tracking east quickly. Temperatures will be taking a dive later tonight. The warmest reading on Wednesday is likely to be midnight tonight in the low to mid 30s. Wednesday morning the readings will be in the upper teens and low 20s with teens possible during the day before wrming to the lower 20s during the afternoon. The winds will remain breezy from the northwest at 15-25 mph so wind chills are going to be in the single digits. The cold really settles in Thursday morning as the center of the high pressure moves over head. The sky will clear and the winds will be light. Looking back upstream temperatures in Nebraska are in the single digits so I think this is where we are headed Thursday morning. The high Thursday should remain at or below freezing for a second day. A slight warmup will take place Friday into the weekend but overall temperatures will remain below average through the seven day forecast. A couple of small disturbances will cross the country with one coming by Friday and another Sunday into Monday. Neither system is very big but might be capable of producing a few light flurries, nothing looks major at this point.
SO no snow just cold... Right now I'm cold and heading back to bed before starting the day in the cold. I have one question... WHERE IS GLOBAL WARMING WHEN YOU NEED IT?!?!
