Cold afternoon, with freezing rain possible by Sunday

TODAY: It’s a chilly afternoon across Mid-Missouri. Mostly cloudy skies are sticking around through the day and keeping temperatures hovering near 20 degrees. The cold conditions along with winds out of the east up to 10 mph, are yielding wind chills in the single digits. Bundle up if you are going to be outside, as little relief is expected through the day.

TONIGHT: Temperatures will tumble once again into the single digits with winds out of the northeast up to 13 mph. These breezy winds will make it feel more like -10 in many spots as you wake up Saturday.

EXTENDED: Starting Saturday we’ll see temperatures climb into the mid to upper 20s across the region beginning our warming trend. By Saturday night, lows will occur at midnight with rising temperatures through the night. This along with a low pressure system that will track through the area will bring the potential for a wintry mix beginning as early as 5 AM west of Hwy 63 Sunday morning. The wintry mix, with the potential for freezing rain will stick around through midday Sunday, bringing with it the potential for traffic problems. By the late afternoon hours, we’ll finally see temperatures climb above freezing for the region, with a changeover to rain. It’s still possible we could see some isolated areas still dealing with freezing rain, as ground temperatures are well below freezing for the region. As the system exits to our southeast by Sunday night, we could see a brief changeover to snow, followed by cooler and drier conditions to follow. Accumulation amounts will total up to 0.30″ north of I-70 to 0.75″ as you travel closer to I-44. Freezing rain accumulations could total as much as .10″, with isolated higher amounts. Early next week, temperatures look to stay climb into the 40s and even lower 50s, with our next shot of precipitation arriving as we head into Thursday.
