Afternoon highs will top out near 43 degrees, with gusty winds up to 26 mph making it feel more like the freezing mark. While the rain has tracked out of the region, some sprinkles/snow flurries are possible as we head into the evening with the cloudy skies remaining.
TONIGHT: There is a chance we could see a few snow flurries into the evening hours, as moisture continues to track out of Mid-Missouri. Cloudy skies will gradually break up through the night, with overnight lows dropping back into the upper 20s. While the winds die down through the night, it will still be breezy enough for wind chill values to fall into the teens by Friday morning.
EXTENDED: Mostly sunny skies will be with us to close out the work week, but the cool conditions remain. Highs will top out near 40 degrees Friday, with wind chill values in the 30s. Christmas weekend looks dry with lows in the upper 20s and highs climbing into upper 40s on Saturday, with a slightly cooler Sunday. Zonal flow returns with westerly winds bringing the chance small disturbances to work through mid-Missouri, giving us limited rain chances. Small rain chances are possible for Christmas Eve and Christmas, but models are still having trouble coming into an agreement. As far as Christmas Day, it looks to be a mild one, with highs in the mid to upper 40s and overnight lows in the 30s.
