TONIGHT: Overcast skies are expected tonight with temperatures holding steady near 50 degrees. It will be a mild evening with some patchy areas of drizzle possible across northwestern parts of Mid-Missouri. A steady southerly breeze through the night will not only pave the way for a mild night, but will set the stage for some areas of fog to develop overnight tonight into Sunday morning.
SUNDAY: You’ll want to watch for some areas of fog tomorrow morning, primarily north of Hwy 24. Following a mild morning across the region, winds will pick up through the day advecting warmer air into the region. Afternoon highs will top out in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. It’ll be breezy at times with winds out of the south up to 15 mph and gusts as high as 22 at times. Into the evening hours a few stray showers will be possible, but expect another mild night.
EXTENDED: Light rain looks possible Sunday night into Monday morning with temperatures topping out in the 50s again before we return to reality. A cold front knocks temperatures back into the 40s Tuesday along with another chance of light rain.The unsettled pattern remains, as a frontal boundary slowly lifts through the region next week. This will not only lead to a chance for wintry mix, but the possibility for localized flooding across southeastern portions of Mid-Missouri. Rainfall amounts in excess of 2 inches are possible near I-44 with lower amounts north. With temperatures falling into the upper 30s Wednesday afternoon, we could see a wintry mix, with a better chance at snow by Thursday. The return to winter will follow with overnight lows to close out the week in the teens and highs in the 20s. Watch ABC 17 News for the latest forecast and check back here for updates.
