Teachman’s Take: New Record Likely Plus EXTREME Winds

Record breaking heat along with strong southerly winds are expected today.  Winds will be gusting from the south up to 40 mph!  That’s why a Wind Advisory is in effect south of I-70 from 10 AM to 6 PM today.  Even north of I-70, winds will be gusting well above 30 MPH.


These winds will take our temps from the 60s this morning into the upper 70s this afternoon.  The record to beat is 75 from 1999.


A cold front is still pinpointed for Friday.  Highs will go from near 60 in the morning to the 30s by evening.  Any shower or thunderstorm will be quick in the morning before drier air invades.  Better chances for rain exist into central and eastern Missouri.  Snow is still expected to track well to our north where Blizzard Warnings are in effect in parts of South Dakota and Minnesota.  There are even winter weather watches and advisories posted as far south as Nebraska.
Colder air arrives by Saturday morning in the upper 20s.  Highs over the weekend, as sunshine returns, will be in the middle 40s to lower 50s.  A hard freeze is imminent Sunday morning with lows in the middle 20s.  Next week, we try to rebound near 60 on Monday.  Our rain chances look favorable Tuesday into Wednesday.
Take care,
