THIS AFTERNOON: Clouds continue to hang tough late this morning with temperatures slowly but surely making it into the 40s across Mid-Missouri. You’ll want your jacket as you head out the door this evening as wind chills will hold in the mid 30s.
TONIGHT: A weak area of low pressure is set to track through northern Arkansas this evening, along with that a chance for some light showers is possible for our counties along and south of I-70 beginning after midnight. We’ll have to watch temperatures as many of us will be below freezing overnight. Some slick spots could develop. However, much of the precipitation looks like it will fall with temperatures above freezing. Be cautious between 2am and 8am on the roadways.
EXTENDED: After early morning showers south of I-70 Friday, we’ll see that band of rain slowly dissapate with some scattered showers possible in the early afternoon east of HWY 63. More widespread rain showers will be moving in overnight Friday into Saturday morning. We could hear a few rumbles of thunder with these showers on Saturday morning and through the day. Rain will be widespread, but most intensity will be light. Temperatures for the first part of the weekend will warm into the middle 50s with breezy southwesterly winds. The warm-up doesn’t last long as a strong cold front moves through Saturday night. We could see showers briefly change over to light snow as cold air rushes back in, more likely north of I-70. Sunday looks breezy and cooler with highs in the low 40s. That seasonal weather sticks around for the beginning of the work week on Monday and Tuesday.
