Good late Wednesday evening, everyone. Our Wednesday turned out to be an interesting one. With a little break in the south breeze overnight we had temperatures quickly drop to the freezing mark. Once the wind picked back up, it was nothing but upward through the afternoon. On a day where normal highs should be in the middle 40s, we had most spots climb into the lower to middle 60s. With Joplin officially hitting 65°, it fell shy of the record high of 69° set back in 1990. Still, an above normal day that felt like early spring? That’s hard to come by in January, so I hope you made the most of it. I say that because our next system will be working in through your Thursday. You can see it bring in the rain and wintry weather on the radar below…
With Thursday’s system, we’ll start warm enough with rain chances for the morning drive. As we proceed through the day, the cold front will bring in the colder air and eventually switch everything over to snow. I have the updated forecast for you, including how the day will unfold and how much of what we’ll see, right below…
