Arctic air dominates our weather this week

TONIGHT: Another frigid night is expected for Mid-Missouri, as temperatures fall near -4 to -10. A low of -8 in Columbia would break the old record of -5 in 2001. Light winds will generate wind chills as low as -25 near HWY 36 in northern Missouri to -5 at the Lake of the Ozarks overnight.

TUESDAY : The Wind Chill Advisory continues until noon as we stay in the deep freeze with high temperatures in the upper teens to lower 20s under mostly sunny skies. Winds will shift to the southwest up to 8 mph, generating wind chills from near zero to 8 degrees in the afternoon.

EXTENDED: After a slight break with high temperatures reaching the lower 20s Wednesday, another surge of Arctic air arrives by Wednesday night, dropping us back into the single digits Wednesday night with highs only in the teens Thursday. It continues to be dry through Friday as we stay below freezing. Friday’s highs will reach the lower 20s. Warmer air finally arrives as we head into the weekend but Saturday will still be quite chilly with highs near freezing or just above freezing south of I-70. Southerly winds will boost temperatures into the lower 40s Sunday with a slight chance of rain or wintry mix. Watch ABC17 News for the newest forecast and check back here for updates.
