Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
708 PM CDT Mon Apr 16 2018

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Tuesday)
Issued at 153 PM CDT Mon Apr 16 2018

High pressure will move over the region this evening and remain
through the overnight hours. Surface winds will shift out of the
south and begin to bring a warmer, more seasonable airmass into
the Ozarks overnight as well.

The combination of clear skies and light winds across the eastern
Ozarks and Lake of the Ozarks region however, will bring the
potential for a widespread frost to those locations. Thus, in
coordination with offices to the north and east of Springfield,
we have issued a Frost Advisory to cover those area where frost is
expected to occur.

Southerly winds will then bring warmer temperatures to the area
Tuesday with temperatures climbing into the upper 60s to middle
70s during the afternoon under mostly sunny skies.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday Night through Monday)
Issued at 153 PM CDT Mon Apr 16 2018

A weak and dry cold front will move through the area Tuesday night
and bring a slight cool down for the are Wednesday. Temperatures
overall through will be much closer to normal for this time of
year for Wednesday and into the weekend.

A storm system is expected to bring rain to the area as we head
into the weekend. Temperatures will remain seasonable so rain will
be the precipitation type. Instability with this system looks
meager, with only an isolated rumble of thunder possible.
