Flash freezing on roadways as Arctic air arrives

TODAY: Rain is coming to an end across parts of Mid-Missouri as dry air is building in on the backside of the cold front. We’re even seeing some sunshine breaking out this afternoon, thanks to that dry air working in from the northwest. Breezy northwesterly winds will keep temperatures from warming much through the rest of the afternoon, with temperatures hovering in the mid 20s. It’ll feel colder though, with many locations seeing wind chills remaining in the teens.

TONIGHT: Clouds will continue to clear out into the evening hours, with temperatures quickly falling to near 20 degrees. Untreated roads will ice overnight, so you’ll want to make sure that you remain cautious when driving. Winds will be out of the west up to 9 mph making it feel more like the lower teens.

EXTENDED: Another cold front swings through on Thursday, keeping the clouds around with snow flurries possible in the afternoon.Temperatures will fall into the single digits overnight Thursday as bitterly cold air returns. A northwesterly air flow aloft will drive upper level waves and reinforcing shots of arctic air into the region from Friday through next Monday. With these, brief periods of light snow are possible but moisture will be limited. If snow does develop with any of these waves, it would be light with only minor accumulation. As of now it looks like we could see light snow Friday afternoon and again Saturday but timing could change. We will stay below freezing from Friday through Saturday, warming just above freezing Sunday and Monday before another arctic front moves in, dropping us into the teens Tuesday.
