Late Sunday November 17th – Few waves to watch this week
First one brings clouds back in for Monday
JOPLIN, Mo. — Good late Sunday evening, everyone. Our weekend came to a close with a cold front and an upper level wave working through this morning. Together, there was just enough lift and moisture in place to give us mostly cloudy skies to start the day and a few showers in some spots. Despite that, we had afternoon highs climb back into the middle to upper 50s. We continue into the rest of the night with nothing on the radar below…
That being said, our next upper level wave is ready to roll in. It will mainly bring cloud cover back in to get the new work/school week started. Once it passes, we’ll enjoy a nice Tuesday before a stronger storm system begins to work in for the latter part of the week. Your latest look at the week ahead is right below…
Don’t forget that Doug has your long range forecast out through late January down below.
Have a good night and a great Monday!

Next Week: The next system moves right back in on Monday and Tuesday. This will be a rain event that could end with snow on Tuesday.
