After yesterday's rain, Monday starts cloudy, but by mid-morning, a line of clearing will work it's way across mid-Missouri from west to east. Those to the southeast (Ft. Leonard Wood, Rolla, Linn, Hermann etc.) will sit under gray skies the longest, but will see sun this afternoon. Winds from the north help us clear, but keep us a tad cool, expect highs just shy of 60 for most.
Tonight, we pay for those clear skies. A Freeze warning is in place for Macon County, with almost everyone else in a Frost Advisory. Those excluded from any cold weather alerts include Camden, Pulaski, Phelps, Maries, Osage, and Gasconade counties. Most will see lows in the 30s, with generally low to middle 30s expected north of I-70 by Tuesday morning.
Pressure will steadily increase as a surface high slides in from the northwest. This keeps sunshine in full effect for Tuesday. Our next warm up begins as this high slides east. We start to feel a more southerly wind Tuesday night, that will lend to 70s returning by Wednesday afternoon. This brings more moisture as well, setting us up for rain chances and a slight break from the 70s on Thursday. A persistent pattern, we warm back into the 70s with more rain chances and some rumbles of thunder becoming more likely. Storms look to kick off the weekend on Saturday, with a drier end on Sunday.
