TONIGHT: It will get fairly cool overnight as high pressure settles over the area. Winds have already backed off this evening, likely remaining calm through sunrise. You’ll want the jacket out the door in the morning, with temperatures in the low 40s.
MONDAY: Although we start off cool, the retreating high pressure along with a return of southerly winds, Mid-MO will warm up quick through the afternoon. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s and low 70s. Winds will be steady between 6-12 mph.
EXTENDED: Beyond Monday, things become unsettled. We’re continuing to track a cold front arriving by Tuesday afternoon. We’re likely going to see some sun in the early morning and that will help drive up instability just a bit… as showers arrive in the afternoon, some rumbles of thunder can be expected as well. The rain looks like it falls steadily through the evening rush hour. Rain totals look to be split along the HWY 63 corridor with half an inch less to the west, and amounts over half an inch east. Some sprinkles could still be around Wednesday evening for the trick or treaters. It will be chilly, keeping the jacket handy regardless of rain will be a good idea. Big cool down with a strong cold front arrives Friday. Tune in to ABC 17 News on-air and online for the latest forecast updates.
