Seasonal Chill

By "Tornado Ted" Keller. CREATED Oct 17, 2013

 The forecast for the next few days will feature seasonally chilly days and nights with a few disturbances passing on by.  

That cold push next week will give the Ozarks its first shot at frost this season.

Today, lots of sunshine is ecpected as a weak upper level disturbance move on to the east. 

On Friday, it does look like another system will spread rain into the area. The showers might affect Friday evening activities in the Ozarks.  It looks like rain totals around a quarter inch are possible.

It looks like clouds may spoil a partial lunar eclipse which will be in progress at moonrise around 6:23 pm on Friday.

My story on the eclipse.

Link to more information on the lunar eclipse.

This weekend is shaping up to be mostly clear and slightly cool for the season.

Another fast-moving disturbance will come through on Monday with a more decisive push of cold air moving in Tuesday.

The latest projections have us very close to the frost point by perhaps Wednesday or Thursday morning.  The occurrence of frost would be controlled by when we can expect the calmest and clearest morning or when high pressure settles in overhead.
