TODAY: Despite it being the first weekend in December, we'll see beautiful and warm conditions through the day. While this morning is on the cool side, with plenty of sunshine and winds out of the southwest under 8 mph, we'll warm into the lower 60s. This warming trend will have Mid-Missouri feeling more like late October, as highs will be nearly 20 degrees above average.
TONIGHT: High pressure will slowly continue to shift east through the night, which will lead to variable light winds. With the shifting high, this will open the door for clouds to slowly build in through the night. Even with the building clouds, we'll see lows bottom out near 40 degrees, with wind chill values in the upper 30s.
EXTENDED: Sunday will start with morning lows near 40, climbing to the low to mid 60s in the afternoon under partly cloudy skies. Breezy conditions will build into Mid-Missouri by Sunday evening, as a cold front developing over the plains slowly tracks towards the region. The cold front moves through Monday which will bring clouds and a chance of rain.A few showers are possible by mid-afternoon but most of the rain moves in during the evening and overnight, ending by 5 AM. Rainfall accumulation looks less than .50" for most of mid-Missouri. Temperatures ahead of this front will reach the mid to upper 60s on Monday but cooler air moves in by Monday night, leaving us with a seasonal day Tuesday with high temperatures in the mid-40s. Colder air moves in through the week with arctic air arriving by next weekend. High temperatures by Thursday will only reach into the 30s with nights dipping into the 20s with colder air by the weekend.
