Overnight lows ranged from 32-degrees at Farmington to 44-degrees in Kansas City and Joplin.
Daytime highs were in the 60s across the Show Me State. The exception two locations in southeast Missouri where Cape Girardeau topped out at 70-degrees and Popular Bluff had the state high at 72- degrees.
Here in west central Missouri Butler recorded a low of 41-degrees and a daytime high of 65-degrees.
A wet 24 to 36 hours ahead for west central Missouri.
Rain chances will move in early, as we may see an isolated shower or two through the early afternoon hours. Rain chances increase through the afternoon hours and overnight. I see the heaviest showers moving in after 3 p.m. and continuing through midnight tonight.
The aforementioned cold front will gradually move in our direction behind the heaviest showers. I look for it to mover though eastern Kansas near midnight and be through central Missouri by the noon hour on Tuesday.
The cold front should exit Missouri by the early evening hours on Tuesday night.
Once the cold front moves through, an area of high pressure will dominate our weather through the end of the week. This will bring us clearing skies and cooler temperatures into the weekend.
Here’s your Quickcast:
Tonight: Cloudy skies continue, rain chances increase overnight. 60 percent chance for showers through 2 a.m. Lows near 50 degrees.
Tuesday: Some sprinkles early, then clearing skies. Highs in the low to mid-60s.
Tuesday night: Clear skies and cooler. Lows in the lower 40s.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny, highs in the lower 60s.
