This will be my last forecast for a couple of days, and it couldn’t be for a more scenic stretch of America.
At 953PM, CT, Fayetteville was reporting a temperature of 44 degrees with clear skies. The elevation seems to be playing a minor role in temperature valuations at present, as Fayetteville was seeing temperatures reading a bit cooler than other locations surrounding it. In general, though, the entire Ozarks region was under a dome of high pressure.
A broad upper level trough is going to move south towards the Great Lakes, but is fairly weak. However, at the base of the upper level trough, there will be a pair of perturbations riding the wave. There isn’t a dramatic cold pool diving into the Ozarks as the trough swings through, but these low level eddies will provide just enough instability for some light showers to rotate through the central Plains to wards the Ozarks tomorrow afternoon. Things will clear out for Friday, but a bit of reinforcement will come for the cold air already in place.

Strange that mine is the only forecast that won’t be dry, given that everyone has such a dramatic drop in temperatures. Weatherbug and WeatherNation did not have hourly forecasts that extended long enough to account for the non standard low. Satellite is pretty quiet right now. Have a great Halloween, and I will see you in November!
