Looking Back:

161108_921_161107Showers and overcast skies were the rule on the west side of the state while sunny skies let things warm up nicely on Monday.

Overnight lows ranged from 39-degees in Farmington to 53-degrees in Springfield.

You could really see where the sun came out as Cape Girardeau, Popular Bluff and St. Louis broke the 70-degree mark, topping out at 72-degrees. Hannibal also made it above 70-degrees and the reached 71-degrees.

Butler started out at 49-degrees and topped out at 66 degrees.

Rainfall on Monday was limited to southcentral and southwest Missouri.  Joplin had .33 inches followed by Butler with .21-inches and Springfield with .16-inches of rain.

Discussion:

161108_921_schoolcastWe’ll have some isolated sprinkles to start the day, but once the frontal boundary clears the west central Missouri region, skies will begin to clear out. We won’t be as warm as yesterday as I don’t think that temperatures will get out of the lower 60s.

161108_921_daycastThis trend will continue the remainder of the week as a ridge of high pressure will force any potential storm way to the north. Most of the storms arriving on the west coast are being forced up and over the ridge into the northern plains and southern Canada.

I expect to see mostly clear skies and limited thin clouds through the first part of next week Afternoon highs will be slightly above the seasonal normal, 60-degrees here in west central Missouri.

161108_921_look-aheadOvernight lows will be in the lower 40s and temperatures in the upper 30s will not be out of the question. I’ll keep an eye out to see if there are any cold weather advisories issued by the National Weather Service.

Here’s your Quickcast:
