A cold dreary Sunday morning underway with temps in the low to mid 30s, cloudy skies and patchy mostly light precipitation moving SW to NE…although some heavier showers primarily in the Bootheel, Ky and Tn. We’ve had some very light freezing rain in our northwest counties early this morning but most areas have inched a degree or two above freezing….and it looks like we’re beginning to dry out. None the less some showers look to linger in our southeast counties until about mid-morning especially over parts of Ky and Tn. Otherwise today looks to end up a touch ‘warmer’ than Saturday with highs in the 40s….but less sunshine as skies remain mainly cloudy at least until later in the afternoon. Overnight some colder and drier air sweeps back in from the northwest…so skies will gradually clear out overnight but it will be breezy and colder again by Monday morning.
After a chilly but dry Monday…the rest of the upcoming week is looking gradually warmer but also wetter. The first round of significant rainfall looks to arrive late Tuesday into Tuesday night. After a quick break on Wednesday, more rain looks likely to arrive by Thursday…with more possible about Saturday. With already extremely wet conditions…more rainfall could become an issue especially if it gets heavier again. Will have to monitor for potential flood conditions with these rounds of rainfall. Otherwise…highs in the 30s and 40s to start the week will gradually warm into the 50s to near 60 by late in the week. Could even be some thundershowers by next weekend.
