SATURDAY: We’ll start off the day on a bright note, with partly cloudy skies as you wake up. With temperatures making it down into the middle 30s in some spots, you’ll want that coat heading out the door. Heading into this afternoon, you’ll downgrade to a lighter jacket, as temperatures warm into the upper 50s to near 60 as clouds will begin to build into the area. Winds won’t be quite as breezy as the previous few afternoons, out of the northeast up to 10 mph, but rain chances are moving in.
TONIGHT: Most of us will stay dry throughout the day until this evening. Rain will be increasing from the south as a low-pressure system moves through the southeastern portion of the country. Rain chances will stick with us well into the night, so keep the umbrella handy, as temperatures cool off back into the mid to upper 30s.
EXTENDED: This morning, the track of the low looks to have shifted slightly further southeast, but the general idea of this system remains the same. As this system moves to our south, moving cooler air in, we could see a changeover to some wet snow before temperatures recover back into the upper 40s Sunday afternoon. There is a narrow window in which we can snow quicker than the warmer ground would melt it, leading to brief accumulations up to an inch on grassy or exposed surfaces. Roads may be slushy initially if the heavy snow materializes, but should be alright. We will be walking a fine line with some of these temperatures tomorrow morning, but it is something we are continuing to track. Things quiet down into Monday, as we look to get back into the upper 60s with plenty of sunshine, and the mid to upper 70s on Tuesday. The next storm system to impact Mid-Missouri moves in Wednesday night into Thursday, bringing the return of showers and thunderstorms.
