It’s still snowing this morning in portions of southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. This will gradually ease up by mid-morning although areas of drizzle will persist through much of the day.
The Springfield snow total for yesterday was 1.4″. This was the latest measurable snow recorded in Springfield. We did have snow reported after midnight too, I don’t think it added up to more than a trace. Springfield also recorded a record cold high temperature of 36° on Friday.
The upper level low is still spinning around over the Ozarks. Drier and slightly warmer air is being drawn into this circulation so the snow should stop this morning. Areas of light showers or drizzle will persist however through the day. I don’t expect our high will get much above the lower 40′s. Wow.
This low is forecast to keep moving east and out of the area through Sunday. This will mean a gradual warm-up for the Ozarks. Sunday should see highs in the 50′s. Sixties and seventies will come back for the work week.
A disturbance over the western U.S. should begin to move into the central U.S. by mid-week. This will start to interact with more humidity in the area to produce some showers and thunderstorm in the area by around Thursday and Friday.
