Late Monday December 23rd – Mild Christmas on tap this year
Before rain chances start to return
JOPLIN, Mo. — Good Monday evening, everyone. Sure enough, we had to start the day out with the cold fog across a good portion of the area once again. Once we got past this morning’s fog, drier air allowed us to warm up quickly throughout the day. Temperatures went from the upper 20s this morning to the middle 60s this afternoon. This time around, we don’t have any fog to worry about for tonight and Tuesday morning. With passing clouds continuing through the night, they won’t bring any rain or snow our way on the radar below…
With this pattern of passing clouds holding for Christmas Eve and Day, we’ll keep things quiet for the holiday this time around with temperatures staying above normal. We are, however, expected to break this pattern as rain chances start sneaking back into the picture by the end of the week. Your latest look at the next several days is right below…
Don’t forget that Doug has your long range forecast out through February 1st down below.
Have a good night, a great Tuesday and a great Christmas Eve!
