Temperatures drop into the upper 40s as winds shift out of the north with the passage of the cold front. It will be a bit breezy behind the front with winds at 10-15 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Showers will linger near the I-44 corridor through Wednesday, with a few showers as far north as I-70. While Halloween looks dry for a majority of Mid-Missouri, isolated showers can’t be ruled out. This will primarily affect those along and south of I-70. Temperatures for Halloween day look to remain in the mid 50s, with the cooler weather arriving into the evening hours. Thanks to the cloudy skies we’ll see, trick-or-treaters can expect temperatures to hold steady in the upper 40s and lower 50s for Halloween night.
EXTENDED: Showers are possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning, mainly closer to I-44 as an upper level wave tracks through southern Missouri. These showers could lift as far north as I-70 during the day Thursday but the better chance of rain will remain closer to I-44. Areas north will see some sunshine but skies will remain mostly cloudy south with high temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. Another cold front will drop south Friday, bringing another chance of rain and keeping us in the low 50s Friday afternoon, dropping into the mid 30s Friday night. After a brief break from the rain Saturday, more showers are possible Sunday. It will stay cool all weekend with highs in the low to mid 50s and nights in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
