TONIGHT: Clouds begin to clear out this evening as temperatures drop back below freezing into the mid 20s by morning. As low temperatures bottom out by morning a steady westerly breeze up to 8 mph will make it feel like the upper teens.
WEDNESDAY: It will be a nicer day with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures reaching the lower 40s with southwesterly winds up to 10 mph.
EXTENDED: The sunshine and warming will be short-lived as our next cold front is quick to follow Thursday. This will bring snow chances for Wednesday night into Thursday morning, ushering in cold air behind it. Minor snow accumulation is possible Thursday with anywhere from a dusting to an inch and a half. Highs will reach the lower 30s Thursday early in the day but fall into the 20s by 6 PM and into the upper teens by early Friday morning. We’ll stay below freezing through early Sunday morning, making into the mid 30s Sunday afternoon. A southern storm system will bring a chance of snow south of Hwy 50 by late Friday night through Saturday afternoon. A band of heavy snow is expected in far southern Missouri Saturday but farther north only minor accumulation is expected north of I-44. Those traveling south Saturday should be aware of possible wintry weather. Past Sunday, we’ll start warming up with high temperatures near 40 Monday and in the low to mid 40s Tuesday and Wednesday, closer to our 30 year averages. Unsettled weather returns later next week.
