Dreary weather gave way to sunshine Sunday afternoon. And, it was a welcome sight despite the chilly afternoon temperatures.

Back to work weather is looking mild and quiet as we begin another January warm spell. The nation remains locked in a mild pattern that features a steady stream of storms moving from west to east across the nation with frigid air remaining locked out.

The pattern Monday through Wednesday will offer up a mix of sunshine and clouds and afternoon highs that will be 10 to 20° above normal.

There really aren’t any weather concerns outside of the possibility of foggy weather Wednesday morning.

A stronger storm will sweep into the area by Thursday. The storm will bring a round of showers late Wednesday night into Thursday. It will also bring a shot of cold air to the Ozarks, and this may lead to a changeover to some light snow Thursday morning near and north of I-44. Temperatures also look like they’ll remain stuck in the 30s all day.

After a cold day Friday, the mild January weather will resume this upcoming weekend with highs back up near 60° Sunday.
