CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The work week will start out chilly but otherwise dry and relatively peaceful, weather-wise.

After last night’s rainfall, skies are clearing out this evening.

The strong north winds will decrease overnight, but it will still be quite cold with daybreak lows in the mid teens to low 20s.

There may be some breaks in the clouds by the afternoon, but it looks like we won’t completely clear out until overnight.

Brian Alworth says Monday will be cold but skies will be mainly clear and winds will be much lighter; highs look to range from the upper 30s northeast to mid 40s southwest.

There won’t be much change for Monday night and Tuesday as it remains mainly clear and cold but not too windy.

It will be slightly less cold for the second half of the week, but still mainly dry.

Wednesday will see some clouds but a very small chance of precipitation.

Temperatures from Wednesday to Friday look to be barely above average, with lows near freezing and highs near 50.

Models continue to advertise a cold front with limited moisture Friday night into Saturday morning.

There’s a chance for light rain from Friday evening into Saturday morning, possibly ending as a tiny bit of snow

But at this point, this does not look like a major system and the forecast may shift with time.
