Chilly temperatures and windy conditions continued in the wake of Saturday afternoon’s storms. Saturday’s storms pelted the area with hail, some up to baseball size. The National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado touched down near Vichy, MO, late Saturday afternoon producing winds over 120 mph.
Sunday’s chillier temperatures came with howling winds that gusted between 40 and 50 mph.
The week ahead will begin with cold morning lows Monday, but we’ll also be enjoying sunshine and highs near 70° later in the day.
Temperatures will continue to climb Tuesday, but we’ll begin the day with a shot at showers. Warmer, gradually more humid weather will continue through Thursday ahead of the next cold front Thursday. The front will bring another round of strong to severe storms.
The threat of wet weather may extend into Friday. What’s more certain is another cold snap. Highs Saturday will likely be in the 50s. And, we’ll likely be dealing with another round of morning lows in the 30s Sunday. We’ll have to keep an eye on temperature trends. This is a cold air mass for late April and it may bring a risk of frost.
