TUESDAY: Clouds are clearing out of Mid-Missouri, with plenty of sunshine expected this afternoon. Afternoon highs will top out near 40 degrees today, with areas to the north likely staying in the upper 30s where passing clouds are expected through the day. Winds will be out of the west up to 10 mph, gradually shifting out of the southwest as we head through the day.
TONIGHT: Temperatures drop back below freezing by Wednesday morning under clear skies. With winds out of the southwest up to 10 mph, it will make it feel more like the mid 20s as you head out the door tomorrow.
EXTENDED: The same wind that creates a wind chill tomorrow morning will actually warm us up nicely through the afternoon as temperatures rise back into the mid 50s. It’ll be the first time this month that Mid-Missouri has seen unseasonably warm temperatures, which couldn’t come at a better time on Thanksgiving as we reach the upper 50s with sunshine for the holiday. By Black Friday our next chance of rain returns, moving in from the west by late morning and continuing through the afternoon with high temperatures near 50. Saturday looks mostly dry with highs in the mid to upper 50s. Another storm system, developing to our south will bring a chance of rain Sunday followed by colder air. If this storm system continues to slow down and persists through early Monday morning, we could see snow on the backend of the low. There is still uncertainty on position and timing which we’ll pin down as we go through the week. If you have travel plans for Sunday into Monday, keep an eye on the forecast.
