First Alert: Stubborn clouds sticking around

First Alert Weather Forecast at 10 p.m. 1/13

(KFVS) - Peaks of sunshine will be slight this afternoon.

Stubborn cloud cover is sticking around the Heartland.

Laura Wibbenmeyer says we’ll have mostly to partly cloudy skies, but we’ll have dry conditions.

Temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s. A light breeze will make these temps feel a touch cooler.

Overnight, clouds will slowly increase from the south which could bring scattered rain and possibly an isolated storm from Cape Girardeau southward.

Not a lot of rain and no severe weather is expected.

More rain is in the forecast for Wednesday and Friday.

Wednesday there could be a rumble of thunder, but severe weather is not expected.

On Friday, some areas could start off with freezing rain or sleet before precipitation changes over to rain.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on this system.

River levels will continue to rise heading into the end of the week into major flood stages along the Mississippi.

The weekend’s weather caused floodwaters in several areas.
