Tracking lots of sunshine today, high winds tomorrow
TODAY: Mostly sunny with winds relaxing to 8-12 mph. Highs climb higher than yesterday as we reach the warmer end of the 50s.
TOMORROW: Winds begin to ramp up again early Monday, with gusts peaking up to 40 mph by the early afternoon. This will boost highs into the 60s with clouds gradually filling in.
EXTENDED: Monday's active conditions come ahead of the workweek's first rain chances by early Tuesday. A cold front will enter western Missouri late Monday night but will struggle to bring more than light showers due to subpar moisture. This boundary will, however, stall near the Missouri-Arkansas border and could produce more rain chances Tuesday. Low pressure is expected to track along this boundary and fill out showers much of Wednesday, though uncertainty is fairly substantial at this point in the forecast. This mainly comes down to disagreement on placement on this boundary, though rain chances have steadily risen over the weekend for our region. We have one more shot of precipitation early Friday, and as that system moves through colder air, some light wintry precip is possible.
