Late Saturday November 23rd – Active week ahead of us
We'll at least enjoy a few quiet and mild days
JOPLIN, Mo. — Good Saturday evening, everyone. We started on a cold note this morning with our departed storm system keeping the cloud cover and some drizzle/flurries around. Once it went far enough east, we saw the skies turn mostly sunny throughout the afternoon as our temperatures stayed cool. We’ll be able to keep the skies mostly clear tonight with nothing on the radar below to worry about…
Even though we stay quiet going into Sunday morning, we have a light south breeze with temperatures near the dew point. That could lead to some patchy fog during the rest of the night. Thankfully, we’ll have a mostly sunny Sunday to enjoy as that south (eventually southwest) wind brings in milder air. However, we’re looking at an active week with storm systems lining up. Your look at the week ahead, including the Thanksgiving holiday, is down below…
Don’t forget that Doug has your long range forecast out through the middle of next January down below. Have a good night and a great Sunday!
