Saturday Evening December 14th – Wintry weather on the way
First of two waves rolling in for Sunday
JOPLIN, Mo. — Good Saturday evening, everyone. The cloud cover ruled the skies all across the area today. That didn’t allow temperatures to warm up very much. We had midnight highs ranging from the lower to upper 40s. After that, temperatures for most of the day stuck between the lower and middle 30s. Even though we stay cold and cloudy to start the evening out, we’re not seeing anything yet on top of us on the radar below…
Even though we stay quiet tonight and to start the early overnight hours out, winter weather advisories are out for most of the area. We’ll have two waves coming at us with wintry weather to keep an eye on before we calm things down by the middle of the week. Your latest look at the week ahead, especially the next two days with wintry weather on the way, is right below…
Don’t forget that Doug has your long range forecast out through February 1st of next year down below. Have a good night and a great Sunday!
