Winter arrives again tomorrow after a brief break today

FRIDAY: Slightly warmer weather is in store for us closing out the work week. Winds will turn out of the south as high pressure slides off to our east. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day as temperatures make it to the low to mid 40s in the afternoon.

TONIGHT: Temperatures drop tonight back to where we started the day, in the low 20s. With winds shifting out of the northwest 3-7 mph thanks to a passing cold front, wind chills will be in the teens. It looks to stay dry through the night tonight.

EXTENDED: With northerly winds our temperatures will be limited from warming too much Saturday, as we only make it into the middle 30s. Winter weather looks like it makes its return Saturday night into Sunday. We have a Weather Alert Day for Sunday through Monday morning, thanks to accumulating snow and dangerously cold temperatures. Behind this initial front, an upper-level disturbance will moves through, increasing snow chances into Sunday morning. At this time, this looks like an all snow event for the viewing area, with accumulation expected. It looks like the heaviest amounts look to be south of I-70, but it looks like all of Mid-Missouri will see some snow. Preliminary amounts look to be in the 3-4″, along the I-70 corridor. Higher amounts will be closer to the Lake of the Ozarks where 5″+ is possible. One detail we are almost certain about is it will get dangerously cold behind this system. Lows will plummet to near zero Sunday night, and with this system bring some breezy conditions, wind chills look to bottom out around 15 to 20 degrees below zero. After that brutal of a start, highs on Monday will struggle to get out of the teens in the afternoon. We start to climb out of the cold toward the middle of next week, getting back to freezing by Wednesday. Check back on air and online for the latest ABC 17 Stormtrack forecast.
