Bitterly cold air will be short-lived with a warm up by Thursday


THIS AFTERNOON: Temperatures will remain in the single digits and low teens throughout this afternoon with wind chills ranging from -5 to -10 degrees across the region. We should see partly to mostly cloudy skies as well, with winds remaining out of the northwest at 10-15mph. There are still neighborhood roads and side roads that remain snow covered and slick, while main roads have been mostly cleared. We’ll see temperatures slowly drop into the single digits by nightfall.

TONIGHT: It will be another chilly night to say the least as temperatures drop back into the low single digits by Wednesday morning under partly cloudy skies. Luckily, winds out of the northwest will be a little bit calmer, from 5-7 mph. This will still create for bitterly cold wind chills as they drop towards -5 degrees, but better than what we saw this morning.

EXTENDED: Sunshine returns by Wednesday, with slight improvements expected. Highs will top out in the lower 20s, but with snow pack still expected, we could see many areas only stay in the upper teens. Thanks to the Arctic high shifting to the east, we’ll see a light southerly wind by Wednesday into Thursday, this will start what will bring the return of temperatures above freezing. Highs top out in the 40s both Thursday and Friday with windy conditions expected, ahead of our next system that will begin to take shape and arrive by next week. Saturday looks to be the warmest day of the next 7, with highs topping out in the mid to upper 50s. At the start of next week, our next system will sweep through Mid-Missouri and bring some much needed rain. There is a slight chance we could see a few flurries into Monday, but overall it’s looking like we’ll see a mainly rain event.
