THURSDAY: We're staring down a nasty start to the day, with winds knifing out of the north this morning gusting at times up to 25 mph, pushing bitterly cold weather back into Mid-Missouri. Wind chills will start out in the teens, but will improve slightly as afternoon highs crawl to the upper 30s.
TONIGHT: That cold air has a chance to settle in tonight as winds back off. Overnight lows will fall into the low 20s, and wind chills will be in the teens once again by daybreak.
EXTENDED: Canadian air responsible for this cold snap sticks around Friday with highs lucky to get back to 40 despite pretty full sunshine. We do see a break heading into the weekend as winds turn out of the south with high pressure sliding off to our east. Temperatures will push into the mid to some upper 50s Saturday and has a chance to stick around Sunday. But things will be in the process of changing throughout Sunday afternoon. Yet another cold front will move through, ushering in maybe the coldest shot of air we've seen thus far. Highs for Monday and Tuesday may not get back above freezing with overnight lows in the teens.
