Tracking a rollercoaster of temperatures this week

Tonight: Temperatures slowly fall to near freezing tonight thanks to winds holding steady out of the west at 8-12 mph with partly cloudy skies.

Tomorrow: Clouds remain partly cloudy across Central Missouri with winds shifting out of the northwest late into the morning hours causing a slight decrease in high temperatures to the mid-'30s.

Extended: Multiple rounds of cooler, northern clipper systems start to funnel in causing various changes in this week's temperatures. Monday we will see our peak highs into the early '50s. Soon after, an incoming cold front drops us down to near single digits for Tuesday nights overnight low. Mid-Missouri remains dry until we see the possibility of slurries to light snow Thursday morning. We are currently looking at a dusting or less. Temperatures then approach average highs once again by the end of the week.
