Tracking a system that brings showers and a chance of snowflakes
TODAY: Dry and warm is the name of the game today, with more sunshine to top it all off. Winds are turning more southerly and will serve to warm us quickly from a cold high 20s into the upper 40s. Clearing overnight has left us quite chilly this morning, but will allow more sunshine throughout the day.
TONIGHT: Winds stay southerly, keeping temperatures near 40 for lows overnight, plus clouds are thickening from the south which will add to the warming effect.
EXTENDED: Saturday will start with clouds and a slim precipitation chance, but that chance will grow through the morning towards the early afternoon. This is when an approaching low will bring folks rain, and a snow rain mix depending on your location. Places like Marshall, Boonville, Columbia, Mexico and northward will have a better chance of a rain/snow mix. South of here, a cold rain will be the forecast. Precipitation on both fronts is light, and ground temperatures will be warm, so any snow that falls will struggle to stick. Chances for accumulation are greater the farther north you travel, where temperatures will be more favorable. Even here, accumulation is expected to be little more than a dusting at most. On the high end of data, it's possible we could get a half inch, but this is highly unlikely. Overall, travel impacts other than a wet or perhaps slushy road is not expected. From here, the forecast looks dry and warm, with Sunday dry and in the low-to-mid 40s, giving way to temps near 50 early in the week. Temperatures moderate into the mid-40s through the end of next week, where slim rain chances taunt us.
