Tuesday Evening December 10th – Sunny Wednesday lined up
Before the activity picks up again
JOPLIN, Mo. — Good Tuesday evening, everyone. After putting up with a cold night, it was at least a good thing to see the sun return to the area today. Even with the returning sun, we went from the lower to middle 20s this morning to the lower 40s this afternoon. We have another cold night ahead of us with another quick round of clouds moving through. With nothing underneath the clouds, the radar below will stay dry for tonight…
After we get this batch of clouds out of here, we’ll turn mostly clear before sunrise. We’ll plan on staying mostly sunny for Wednesday…
With a returning southwest wind working with mostly sunny skies, we’ll go from the upper 20s Wednesday morning to afternoon highs in the lower 50s…
With a weak wave planning on passing by Thursday, we’ll quickly see skies turning mostly cloudy once again. Despite that, we’ll keep things dry for Thursday and Friday…
Heading into the rest of the weekend, we’ll have a couple of waves heading our way. The first will sneak in late Saturday and continue into Sunday. What starts off as scattered rain chances late Saturday afternoon and evening could transition to a rain/snow mix as we roll into Sunday…
Once that first wave passes, another will work in from the Rocky Mountains and keep rain chances around to start the new work/school week out…
We’ll continue to keep an eye on these upcoming waves since we are starting to return to the active part of the pattern. Don’t forget that Doug has his long range forecast down below covering things into late next January. Have a good night and a great Wednesday!
