A ridge of high pressure will build into the Midwest this week, bringing a welcomed stretch of quiet weather to Missouri.
Cooler air will filter in behind the cold front that brought thunderstorms to the far eastern portion of Missouri, causing temperatures to dip to below average levels. Highs tomorrow will only be reaching into the lower to mid 60s. With the average high temperature for the first of May set at 71 degrees for Columbia Regional Airport, temperatures will be between 6 to 10 degrees cooler than normal tomorrow.
The unseasonably cooler temperatures will persist through Monday, with daytime highs only expected to top off near 63 degrees.
Heading into Tuesday, however, the ridge axis will begin shifting to the east, causing our temperatures to warm back into the mid 70s by midweek after winds return out of the southwest.
