AFD 01/25/2024 2:00 PM

Regional radar shows the back edge of precipitation has shifted through the area. NWS expired the dense fog advisory at noon as visibility had come up just about everywhere to at least a mile and a half. Temperatures across the area were ranging from the low 40s to upper 40s. Water vapor imagery was showing the upper circulation bringing the current round of rain pushing into the southwest corner of Missouri with the next

wave over the Rockies.

Tonight - Friday: Models suggest dense fog will redevelop tonight, early on from around the southwest corner of the state to Springfield to the Lake of the Ozarks and

Rolla areas. The back edge of precipitation will continue to shift northeast and should clear the central MO during the early evening. Lows tonight are expected in the mid to upper 30s. On Friday, the fog should diminish by mid to late morning. The upper level low is expected to track east out of the Rockies and into the southern plains with rain likely holding off to our south and west until Friday night. Highs Friday are expected in

the mid 40s north to low 50s south.

Friday night and Saturday: Latest data is showing the upper low track further to the south than yesterday and our rain amounts have been lowered. Highest chances for rain in the south will be in the 70-80% range with rain totals in the 0.40-0.60" range along the MO/AR border. Most of the precipitation should end by Saturday evening as the low pushes off to the east of the area.

Remainder of the weekend into Monday: We should see upper height rises behind the upper low on Sunday and will also see the first glimpses of sunshine in awhile. There is a bit of cooler air behind the low, so temperatures will probably remain

in the low to upper 40s for highs. Some warmer air will advect into the area ahead of another shortwave on Monday and we should see temperatures warm into the mid 50s for most locations.
