THIS AFTERNOON: Tracking lots of sunshine into this afternoon… Unfortunately temperatures will struggle to climb due to persistent snowpack. High temperatures will range anywhere from the mid-upper 20s north of HWY 50, to the low 30s across the Ozark Plateau. Winds stay steady out of the northwest at 5-10 mph.
TONIGHT: It will be a mostly clear night for Mid-Missouri, as temperatures drop bitterly cold, again. Lows by morning will be in the mid teens with wind chill values dropping into the single digits. Winds will be out of the west from 2-4 mph.
EXTENDED: We’re tracking a slow warming trend this week, with temperatures back to the 40s by Wednesday. Sunshine dominates the forecast through Tuesday as high pressure moves overhead, with increasing clouds by Wednesday. Temperatures will continue to climb through the end of the week with southerly flow returning as high pressure moves to the east. With this southerly flow, any areas that still have snow could see some foggy conditions by Wednesday morning. We remain relatively quiet until an upper level wave arrives Thursday, which could spark some light rain showers Thursday night. More widespread rain looks possible into the weekend on Saturday and depending on it’s track could bring either rain or a wintry mix.
