Temperatures were cooler this morning behind the cold front that
moved through last night. Readings ranged from the mid 30s in the
far northwest to mid 40s over southern sections. Some clouds were
located over mainly western Kentucky this morning but cleared out as
the day progressed. Plenty of sunshine is in place this afternoon
under surface high pressure that has nosed down into our area.
Temperatures are quite mild with 2pm readings in the mid to upper
50s with light northeasterly winds.
Quiet conditions will continue this evening as a strong storm system
begins lifting rapidly northeast from the Rockies to the Great Lakes
by Tuesday night. Showers and isolated thunderstorms will move into
southeastern Missouri after midnight. These will move northeast
across the area heading into the morning hours. The main show with
this system still appears to occur during the afternoon into the
evening hours as a line of thunderstorms develops and intensifies
across the area. The primary threat will be damaging winds with
these storms but a few tornadoes are also possible.
In the wake of this system, the rest of the week is expected to be
dry with near normal temperatures.
