Friday Evening November 15th – Watching a few systems over the next few days
Won't stop us from having a decent weekend, though
JOPLIN, Mo. — Good Friday evening, everyone. After a cold start this morning, mostly sunny skies and a light breeze allowed us to rebound nicely this afternoon. Once we saw afternoon highs climb into the middle 50s, we’re set for another cold night ahead of us. On the plus side, the skies will stay mostly clear tonight with nothing on the radar below to worry about…
Skies will stay mostly clear tonight and mostly sunny for Saturday while we wait for our next front off to our northwest…
As far as temperatures are concerned for Saturday, we’ll start with another cold morning with lows in the lower 30s (some upper 20s can’t be ruled out) and follow it up with temperatures close to 60° in the afternoon. Heading into late Saturday night and Sunday morning, the clouds will definitely be picking up as our next system rolls in…
This isn’t a strong storm system, but this will bring some rain chances our way for Sunday. So far, it appears that the best rain chances on your Sunday will be during the morning hours.
Once we get past Sunday morning, the rest of the day will stay dry as temperatures stay chilly. This front won’t cool us down a lot, but it will nudge afternoon highs back down into the lower to middle 50s.
Another weak wave will come in on Monday. Aside from a few showers, it’ll keep us mostly cloudy and chilly to start the new work/school week out. We’ll enjoy a quiet and mild Tuesday before a stronger storm system begins to work in on Wednesday. That will keep rain chances in here for the rest of the week. Depending on how temperatures fare on Friday, we could even have a rain/snow mix to keep an eye on.
Don’t forget that Doug has your long range forecast out through late January down below.
Have a good evening and a great Saturday!
Long range forecast through late November:
LONG RANGE FORECAST BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN. THIS COVERS NEBRASKA, IOWA, KANSAS, MISSOURI, OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS.
End of Next Week: The stronger storm system that’ll work in on Wednesday sticks with us for Thursday and Friday. Depending on how temperatures fare Friday, we could have a rain/snow mix to contend with. Staying pretty cool for the weekend.
November 24th – 30th: The next system moves right back in on Monday and Tuesday. This will be a rain event that could end with snow on Tuesday. We warm up for Thanksgiving with our next system rolling in mainly on Black Friday. This as of now mainly looks like a rain event. I think temperatures will stay decent into the holiday weekend.
December 1st – 7th: Mild with rain chances back in on Sunday and Monday. Turning colder with rain or snow on Tuesday. Staying cooler through the middle of the week with rain back in on Thursday and Friday. As we get colder air in on Friday, we could go to snow once again. Cold temperatures settle in for the weekend.
December 8th – 14th: Temperatures moderate for the beginning of the week. Rain and snow chances back in on Tuesday and Wednesday. Turning much colder again for the rest of the week.
December 15th – 21st: A cold start to the week with rain and snow chances on Sunday. We will warm up a bit for the middle of the week. Rain and snow chances right back in on Thursday and Friday with cold temperatures back in for the weekend.
December 22nd – 28th: Mainly a cold week for Christmas. Rain and snow chances on Christmas eve and Christmas day. Staying cool and dry the rest of the week.
December 29th – January4th: Another cool to cold week. Snow chances Sunday and Monday. A week system with some snow showers possible on New Years Day. Cold and dry the rest of the week.
January 5th – 11th: Again, mainly a cold week with rain, ice and snow chances on Monday and Tuesday. Staying cold with our next system in on Friday and Saturday with rain and snow chances.
January 12th-18th: A cold start to the week, but temperatures will warm by mid-week. A few showers in on Friday and Saturday.
January 19th-25th: A mild start to the week with a bigger system in on Tuesday and Wednesday. This will mainly give us rain, but could go over to snow on the backside of the system. Turing much colder the rest of the week with a moderation in temperatures for the weekend. Rain chances back in on Saturday.
