Forsyth Mo. – This winter has already been one for the record books! Sub-zero temps combine with snow have combined to force a lock down of sorts fro most everyone except emergency personnel!
Here was the latest from the National Weather Service for southwest Missouri;
Tues Feb 15 – ‘Quiet but cold weather is expected on Tuesday as surface high pressure builds across the area. Look for afternoon highs in the teens. By Tuesday night through yet another system takes aim at the region as a trough deepens over New Mexico. This trough then will migrate across Texas and Oklahoma through Wednesday night and through the local area Thursday. Broad lift ahead of this feature will spread a prolonged period of snow for southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks. Not a classic heavy snow set up as the surface low actually tracks along the Gulf Coast. At this time highest amounts looks to be over far southern Missouri. However there still remains considerable spread in the models so exact amounts still difficult to ascertain.
After the snow moves out a pattern change will bring warming temperatures back to the area for late this week and into the weekend. A system this weekend could bring a little rain or snow to the region, but the biggest story will highs returning back into the 40’s for both Saturday and Sunday.’
So, hunker down, stat home and stay warm!
