Here it comes! Temperatures as of 4:15am CT show the obvious cold front between St. Louis and Springfield, MO heading this way by evening!

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mainly clear with a few high clouds.
6am: M/Clear 50°
8am: M/Clear 55°
10am: Partly Sunny 61°

ONE MORE WARM DAY:
We saw warmer temperatures (readings slightly above average) return Monday. Similar readings hang with us one more time for Veterans’ Day. Expect clouds to increase later this morning with rain showers arriving from the west by late afternoon as a sharp arctic cold front arrives. Highs will reach the mid 60s with the aid of breezy south to southwest winds but will begin to fall rapidly as we head into the evening when northwest winds take over.

ARCTIC INVASION!
Wednesday afternoon’s readings will be almost 20 degrees colder than Tuesday’s despite mostly sunny skies returning. But the mother lode of the cold, arctic air won’t even arrive until Thursday. That’s when daytime highs may not even get out of the 30s for most! Overnight lows will also be quite cold, plunging into the low 20s by Thursday night. At least mid to late week looks dry, although unseasonably cold temperatures stick around through Friday.

THE CHILL LINGERS:
Don’t look for a major warmup through early next week! Readings stay well below average through Monday. A weak weathermaker may cut across the Deep South late Saturday, sending some moisture northward. We could see a mix of light rain and light snow with this system into Sunday, although it’s much too soon to speculate on any snow amounts. Monday looks dry but cold.
