Some of my friends have been inquiring as to what they might expect in the way of weather for Springfield and places south of the I-44 corridor. I’ve been listening to the weather service and while we can definitely expect some rain to fall on Thursday, December 24, I think any snow that will fall will do so in the middle to northern part of Missouri. A lot will depend on the actual track of the upper low pressure system that is forecast to swing out of Oklahoma and then track quickly across the Ozarks on it way to the northeast. The map at right is the best guess right now as to what we can expect. Any snow or icy accumulation will likely occur on the backside of this system as it swings on through. So, all in all travel in our neck of the woods should not be a problem for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
I am just a simple man with a head full of sand who is currently residing in a small town called Forsyth Missouri. I enjoy hiking, camping and all things related to gardening. I rec’d my degree from SIU majoring in Biology many moons ago and still maintain a great interest in the study of all living things. My hobbies include meteorology, the Finnish language and inhabiting cyberspace whenever possible.
