Teachman’s Take: Spring To Winter To Spring Again
Dense Fog Advisory in effect until 9 AM. Visibility is less than a quarter of a mile and temperatures are below freezing, so there could be some isolated slick spots. Bridges and overpasses will could be the slickest.
Skies start mostly sunny after the fog mixes out. By afternoon, aided by the southeast winds that will pick up by afternoon, highs will climb near 60. Clouds will arrive this afternoon and a few sprinkles and showers are possible by evening. There is a better chance for showers and possibly an isolated storm southeast of the metro after dark.
A strong storm system will do many things to our region come Tuesday. For one, it starts off mild in the lower 50s. Highs will climb to the lower 70s! Winds will also be strong and as the humidity drops, there will be a heightened fire risk during the afternoon. There is also a good shot for showers and thunderstorms toward evening.
The strongest will track along and south of the I-44 corridor in Missouri. A few storms are expected southeast of the metro that could contain hail and gusty winds.
When the back side of the system arrives after midnight on Wednesday, any rain in our region will change over to snow. Temperatures will be falling into the upper 30s and lower 40s. And after that, temperatures start to swing back warmer. Fifties for Thursday and Friday with dry skies. Sixties expected over the weekend with plenty of sunshine.
