Tracking chances for slick roads and a colder week ahead
TONIGHT: Another round of a freezing drizzle/rain mix is heading into the forecast area late tonight. The highest chances for Missouri are just to the south of us, but that doesn't mean we are completely out of it. Amounts are less that 1/10th of an inch once again, but because of the fact that surfaces have had such a long time to cool off, we could see stronger effects. Overnight, the chances for slick spots rise, and stay into Monday morning, so make sure to drive a bit more carefully late tonight into the Monday morning commute.
TOMORROW: Winds are still sticking around, and as are the clouds, with temperatures cooler than they are today. This means that it's going to feel much colder than it is outside with the wind-chill in our area, so make sure to wear lots of layers in order to stay warm. Late tomorrow night there are chances for snow and sleet south of I-44, but Columbia is still tracking towards the drier side for this system.
EXTENDED: The rest of the week is looking dry, cloudy, and near average for this time of the year. As we move through the week, temperatures are starting to trend warmer, but it is very gradual. If you're wanting sun, the best chances are tracking for Friday, which is where we get our first chance for 40 degree weather in the week.
