Daily brief (3/3): Top picks from the Springfield media

Winter hasn’t vanished completely from the Ozarks. Today will be mostly sunny but colder, with a high of 49. Winds of up to 22 mph will keep some bite in the air.

Tonight’s will dip below freezing, but tomorrow will be a bit warmer, with a high of 57. Skies will remain sunny through Tuesday, but a chance of thunderstorms returns Wednesday.

Highlight of the week: Be sure to check out Marideth Sisco’s latest “These Ozarks Hills” broadcast from KSMU — a wonderful slice of Ozarks life from a great writer.
