247 PM CDT Thu Apr 10 2014
Clouds continued to increase gradually from the west across
southeast Missouri and southern Illinois Thursday afternoon, but for
the most part, at least partial sunshine still prevailed in varying
amounts across the Quad State Area. Morning low temperatures
averaged in the lower to mid 50s but warmed quickly under the
influence of a gusty southerly wind. By mid afternoon, temperatures
were common from the mid 70s to around 80 degrees with winds gusting
from 20 to 30 miles per hour.
A weak, slow moving cold front will begin a sweep across the area
tonight from out of the Central Plains bringing with it a chance of
showers and perhaps a few rumbles of thunder. This first frontal
passage will be the weaker of two cold fronts that will affect the
area into next week. The more pronounced one will target the area
later Sunday into Monday.
Temperatures ahead of the second cold frontal passage will remain
near normals, but behind the late weekend cold front - temperatures
will fall 15 to 20 degrees below normal along with appreciable
rainfall amounts expected Sunday night into Monday.
