Warm temperatures on Thursday afternoon won’t last long, as a cold front approaches from the west by late evening.
The front will bring light rain to the area late tonight mainly after 10 p.m.
Rain showers exit with the fast moving front by early Friday morning, leaving us mainly dry for the morning commute with rain east of Highway 54 after 5-6 a.m.
Much cooler air settles in behind low pressure early Friday, allowing for a few flurries as temperatures fall through the 30s during the day. Wind chills will drop into the teens through late afternoon with gusty northwest winds.
Saturday is dry and much cooler, with a high in the upper 20s and low 30s. Wind chills drop from about 15 in the afternoon, to zero by Sunday morning.
Another fast moving clipper system will dive south Saturday night into Sunday, bringing a chance for light snow through Sunday morning.
Light snow looks to exit Mid-Missouri to the south by early Sunday afternoon.
Not much moisture is accompanying this system, and temperatures will be frigid Sunday morning, so right now accumulations appear to be under 1″. However, the morning commute could be impacted along Mid-Missouri roadways as snow falls.
