Series of cold fronts bring clouds and rain this week

It’s been a cloudy, cold, and drizzly November for a good portion of Mid-Missouri. While most of the year has had above average temperatures (outside of August), November is ending that streak. At nearly 3-degrees below average, November is starting what will likely be a taste of the cold to come this winter in Mid-Missouri.

Despite the persistent overcast skies and drizzle that Mid-Missouri has seen this month, little rainfall accumulation has actually occurred at Columbia Regional Airport. To date, Columbia has only seen 0.02 inches of rain. It’s the driest start to November in over five years.

While the cool trend will continue as we head into the coming days, little moisture will stream back into the region. This will bring a slight chance for rain in the forecast heading into the middle of this week, with persistent drizzle likely Tuesday night. The best chance for rain arrives heading into Wednesday, as a cold front will bring a chance for a round of showers and storms in the forecast.

While overall accumulations by the end of the week will amount to less than half an inch, it will still be beneficial to the region. Unfortunately, with that rain comes an increased chance for overcast skies, which can only mean winter is close.
