TONIGHT: Clouds will start to increase this evening and into the overnight hours. These clouds keep us mild overnight with temperatures dipping into the low to mid 40s. Winds will start to turn out of a more easterly direction with a low pressure system moving closer to Mid-Missouri.
SUNDAY: Eyes turn to a rapidly strengthening storm system that will track through the great plains into tomorrow morning. We’re going to start off the day in the mid 40s, but by 11 am we’ll see rain begin across western portions of the viewing area. Temperatures will drop fast through the thirties and we’ll change over to all snow by early afternoon. We’ll see winds sustained up to 30 mph, with gusts over 40 at times which will create whiteout conditions along and north of HWY 50 at times. TRAVEL IS NOT ADVISED! Roads will become very dangerous, very fast tomorrow.
EXTENDED: The snow tapers off late tomorrow evening, with skies slowly clearing, and much colder air settling in. We’re bitterly cold to start the work week with day time highs struggling to make it to freezing Monday & Tuesday. We’ll slowly warm into the forties by Wednesday, into the end of the week.
