408 AM CST Sun Dec 21 2014
Temperatures dropped into the 20s overnight over most of our
region, except where skies remained cloudy in parts of southeast
Missouri and southern Illinois. Temperatures at 4 am ranged from
the mid 20s in western Kentucky to near 40 degrees at Poplar
Bluff, where skies were still cloudy.
High pressure over the Ohio Valley will bring dry conditions
through tonight. The clouds over parts of southeast Missouri and
southern Illinois should clear out by late today. Highs will be in
the mid to upper 40s.
A cold front will move east across the Plains on Monday. Southerly
winds ahead of this front will bring milder air to our region,
along with increasing moisture. Rain will become likely by Monday
night, and there is even a chance of thunderstorms on Tuesday over
western Kentucky and southwest Indiana. Highs will be in the 50s
both Monday and Tuesday. Lows will be around 50 Monday night.
A strong cold front will move east across our region on Tuesday
evening. Colder air in the wake of this front may change the rain
to snow before it ends Wednesday. Accumulating snow appears very
unlikely at this time, but it cannot be ruled out. Lows will be in
the mid to upper 30s Tuesday night. Highs on Wednesday will be in
the upper 30s to around 40.
High pressure will move across our region on Christmas Day,
bringing sunshine and highs in the 40s.
