It feels like we’ve been dodging showers for much of the week with another batch moving through tonight. Many areas will once again miss out on some beneficial rain with the heavier rains focused across areas near and south of the state line.

It’s the perfect kind of rain with regard to the weekend, a quick hitter with little impact on weekend conditions.

Any leftover rain Saturday morning will be south of the state line and on the way out. Clouds will blanket the area early but will thin out from northwest to southeast during the day. Most areas will be enjoying blue skies and mild temperatures by late afternoon.

Another cold front will sweep through Saturday night. It will move through mostly unnoticed, but it could generate some cloud cover and possibly some sprinkles closer to St. Louis.

The impact of the front will be felt Sunday with a chilly morning for early churchgoers. A mix of sun and clouds may develop later in the morning, especially northeast of Springfield, fading away by early evening. Gusty northwest winds will make an already chilly late April day feel even chillier.

May rolls in on Monday and it looks like a beautiful and quiet start to the month. Temperatures will still be running cool, but temperatures will climb throughout the week. We’ll be enjoying sunshine and 70s by Wednesday. Wet weather looks like it will return to the area Thursday, possibly lingering into Friday.
