Tracking a chilly start to a warm weekend

TODAY: Cold air from the arctic is bordering mid-MO as an arctic high has pushed in just north of us. Temperatures this morning are falling into the teens and single digits. This cold is short lived, as winds are from the north this morning, but turn southerly this afternoon. Temperatures only reach low 30s despite blue skies. This afternoon, as winds shift southerly, we will begin to warm but be cut-off by sunset. Still, our cool down tonight will slow thanks to the south wind.

TONIGHT: Temperatures fall into the 20's where they will stagnate. Skies will remain mostly clear through sunrise.

EXTENDED: High clouds move in ahead of an approaching trough of low pressure, beginning early Saturday. Skies will be mostly cloudy, increasingly so through the day, but we'll stay dry. Temperatures will soar into the 50s with breezy winds that may gust as high as 20-30 mph. Winds let up a bit on Sunday, as they turn more westerly. Still, we'll climb into the mid-50s under mostly sunny skies. Clouds and wind return on Monday, as we feel temperatures in the 60s by the afternoon. Rain looks like it will hold of until Tuesday morning, where a cold front passes through bringing showers with it. High pressure builds in for some time after that, giving us a short break before rain returns either Wednesday night, or midday Thursday. Timing is still a big question here, so stay tuned.
