Late Saturday November 30th – Windy end to the holiday weekend
At least we'll stay dry for Sunday
JOPLIN, Mo. — Good late Saturday evening, everyone. After we dealt with rain (and a wintry mix for some) on Thanksgiving and t-storms on Black Friday, it was nice to see the sun return this afternoon. That took us from the upper 40s this morning to afternoon highs in the lower 60s across the region. You probably noticed the wind picking up once again late this evening. The backside of the storm system, the same one that has been around this entire holiday weekend, is working in and causing the wind to increase. It also has some snow in parts of northern Kansas and northwestern Missouri on the radar below, but we should stay dry for tonight…
With the increasing wind on the backside of this system, it will guarantee a much cooler Sunday for us. The start of the first work/school week in December will be a quiet one before we see rain chances sneak back in. It’s all due to one of a few waves we’re watching for the week ahead. Your latest breakdown of the week ahead, including our windy Sunday, is right below…
Don’t forget that Doug has your long range forecast out through middle to late January down below.
Have a good night and a great Sunday!
