Joplin is famous in the meteorology world for the disaster that afflicted the city last year. An F5 tornado killed 160 people in the town last summer, and residents are still trying to put the pieces back together. This will be a good couple of days to do that.
At 153AM, Joplin was reporting a temperature of 55 degrees with clear skies. A push of cold air had finally found it’s way into the center of the country, and high pressure was beginning to build into the south central portion of the country.
A sharp trough has been cut off over the center of the country, which is preventing the ridge from developing strongly. That said, moisture will be shunted south, focused along a surface low over northeastern Texas. Joplin should enjoy sunny skies and seasonable temperatures through Wednesday.
