Strong gusty winds to follow rain and storms this afternoon

THIS AFTERNOON: A powerful, deepening low continues to spin over the eastern plains of Colorado this afternoon and continues to swing a cold front toward Mid-Missouri this afternoon. Rain and storms will break out over the region later this afternoon and last 5 & 6 pm. We look to dry out after the evening rush, with a couple peeks of sunshine possible. Strong gusty winds will follow the cold front, sustained at 20-30 mph G to 50mph at times.

TONIGHT: The winds won’t be quite as strong overnight, but we could still see gusts reaching 30 mph out of the south, which will keep temperatures from dropping off too much tonight, only into the low 50s.

EXTENDED: Winds will keep up into Thursday, as a cold front moves in. Those winds will slowly shift from a southwest to a more northwesterly direction throughout the day as the front works through, and gusting at times around 50 mph. This slow transition will hold off the cooler air until Friday, with highs only making it into the low to mid 40s. We rebound quickly heading into the weekend, with a calm weather pattern taking hold once again. Temperatures make it to the middle 40s Saturday, and all the way to the mid 50s on St. Patrick’s Day. Those more spring-like temperatures stick around into the first part of the work week. Check back with ABC 17 News for the latest forecast on-air and online.
