Showers and some thunder will visit the Ozarks today but Easter Sunday should be fantastic!
Rain on morning radar is showing up in southwest Missouri and over much of eastern Kansas. This activity is sliding east-southeast this morning and will affect the area through about Noon. Some thunder may be included in this batch of rain but no severe weather is expected.
More scattered showers and storms might redevelop later today along a wind shift line. While there is an outside chance for some hail with these storms, the overall threat of severe weather remains low for much of the area.
Some folks may pick up an additional .25 to .75″ of rain, especially the more south and southwest your location is from Springfield.
I’ve outlined the heavier rain and hail areas I expect today on the Drawing Board.
Mostly sunny skies and gorgeous temperatures await us this Easter! Sunrise is at 7 a.m. on Sunday and skies should be clear to partly cloudy.
After starting in the upper forties, the day should quickly warm and all areas of the Ozarks should go back into the sixties!
April Fool’s Day
Monday will be colder as a fresh shot of cold air arrives the night before.
Precipitation forming behind the front will take the form of a chilly rain during the day Monday and may mix with or change over to a wet snow for some Monday evening. No accumulation is expected with this snowfall but hard to discuss in early April!
Rest of the Workweek
The week looks dry and chilly for Tuesday and Wednesday but warms by the end. We should get sixties back by the end of the week and into the following weekend.
