Sunday was so nice we’ll do it twice. It looks like Monday will be a repeat of Sunday, just not as cold in the morning. All in all a beautiful day with sunny skies, light winds, and afternoon highs in the low 60s. And a great day to savor a Chiefs Super Bowl win!
Two storms will hit the area this week. The first will be a wet and windy storm that will sweep through Tuesday. A wave of rain, some heavy, will sweep through Tuesday, but the storm will leave the door open for some sunshine later in the afternoon. Strong winds will also accompany the storm with wind gusts over 40 mph likely.
Wednesday will offer up an opportunity to dry out. We’ll also get teased with spring temperatures as temperatures climb to some of the warmest levels of the year so far.
The warmth will get swept out late Wednesday night as a strong cold front moves across the Ozarks. Showers and thunderstorms will break out ahead of the front Wednesday night with a risk for stronger storms setting up near and south of the state line.
By sunrise, colder air will begin flowing in. Temperatures will fall Thursday morning into the 20s and then struggle to warm back into the low 30s Thursday afternoon. Wind chills will fall into the teens Thursday afternoon before possibly falling into the single digits Thursday night.
A cold finish to the week will give way to another warming trend with highs back in the low 60s by Sunday ahead of yet another storm early next week.
