Arctic air makes a comeback

THURSDAY: Waking up you will feel the Arctic air that has arrived through the night. Temperatures this morning will be close to 0, but it will feel even colder. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect until noon today as feels like temperatures will drop as low as -15. You’ll want to bundle up through the day, as highs only top out near 16 degrees under mostly sunny skies. Winds through the day will be out of the northwest up to 10 mph.

TONIGHT: Temperatures tonight will still be cold, but we will see improvements from last night under mostly cloudy skies. Lows will drop towards 7 degrees, with a light wind knocking wind chills close to 0. A Clipper system to our north could graze parts of mid-Missouri and bring a light dusting of snow for our northeastern counties.

EXTENDED: It will continue to remain on the cold side into Friday, but we do begin to see a warming trend. 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 approaching the freezing mark. Areas west of HWY 63 look to hold the best chance for above freezing temperatures on Saturday. Southerly winds will boost temperatures into the lower 40s Sunday across all of mid-Mo. with this warm up, we will see an increasing rain chance as early as Sunday morning. As the rain is expected to arrive temperatures will be flirting with the freezing mark. For the start of the day any precipitation will likely fall as rain, but surface temperatures will still be below freezing due to the consistent hard freeze for the last 2 weeks. This is when we could expect some freezing rain with impacts to the roadways. Through the afternoon on Sunday temperatures will rise into the 40s and it will turn to an all rain event as the system pushes east. Early next week shows another cool down with highs in the 30s on Monday and dropping temperatures through mid-week. Watch ABC17 news for the newest forecast and check back here for updates.
