Improving conditions are expected in the Ozarks as we dry out and warm up over the next few days.
Low clouds and some fog are still lingering over the area this Sunday morning. These will break by late morning and allow our temperatures to climb into the lower seventies over much of the Ozarks later this afternoon.
Even warmer conditions are in store for us early in the week. Monday through Wednesday is a warm stretch for us with readings near 80° expected on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday should be fairly warm as well.
A big front will slide into the Ozarks late Wednesday. This is connected to a huge chuck of chilly air forecast to “cut-off” in the upper atmosphere late in the week and linger through the weekend. This features will cause highs to stall in the fifties on most days, maybe only forties in some areas and lows dropping into the thirties are possible. The exact nature of any frost potential will be determined by cloud cover and wind. If both are maintained through this period, the threat for widespread frost should be limited. It will be monitored for sure as of course the first of May is Wednesday!
