WEDNESDAY: It will be sunny, breezy and cold with highs only reaching the upper 30s to near 40 with northwesterly winds at 10-16 mph, gusting to 25 mph at times, generating wind chills in the 20s in the afternoon.
TONIGHT: Some passing clouds lead to partly cloudy skies as temperatures dip back into the low 20s. With winds out of the northwest up to 6 mph wind chills will be in the low teens by morning.
EXTENDED: We’ll stay in the upper 30s again for Thursday with a few clouds in the sky and light winds from the southeast up to 8 mph. A storm system is developing for Friday and will send moisture into mid-Missouri during the day Friday as temperatures stay in the upper 30s. At this time, it looks like it will start as a mix of rain and snow which will increase after 1 PM Friday and change to all snow by evening with snow continuing through the night into Saturday morning. Snow will shift to the east-southeast during the day Saturday before ending. Snow amounts will range from light accumulation farther northwest to moderate accumulation to the east-southeast. It is too early to pin down exactly how much is expected but on average, it currently looks like 3-5 inches is possible with the highest totals south of HWY 50. Localized areas may be heavier. Temperatures will be below freezing from Friday evening through Saturday morning so untreated roads will be slick. Sunday looks partly sunny and cold with high temperatures in the upper 30s.
