255 PM CDT Mon Mar 10 2014
Clear skies and light south winds were the rule across the four
state region overnight. Temperatures at sunrise were generally in
the middle and upper 30s. During the day, plenty of sunshine
prevailed as temperatures warmed rather nicely and by 245 pm had
reached the lower and middle 60s. Southwesterly winds had picked up
this afternoon and averaged 10 to 15 mph.
High pressure will remain in control through much of Tuesday.
Southwesterly winds along with ample sunshine will take high
temperatures into the upper 60s and lower 70s. As it weakens, a
developing storm system just to our west will drag a cold front over
the region early Wednesday. As it approaches, we will see a good
chance of showers and thunderstorms over the Quad State region
Tuesday night and early Wednesday. Drier, but sharply colder air
will return with highs Wednesday actually falling into 40s
throughout the day. From Thursday through the weekend, high pressure
will return, along with a gradual warmup going into the weekend.
