Tuesday Evening December 3rd – Next system on the way
Not until we enjoy a quiet Wednesday
JOPLIN, Mo. — Good Tuesday, evening, everyone. Our day started out with mostly cloudy skies, but we eventually saw the sun brighten things up this afternoon. In addition, we saw temperatures climb into the lower to middle 50s this afternoon after our cold start this morning. The evening started out with mostly clear skies and that plans on sticking around through the night. As a result, we won’t have anything on the radar below to worry about tonight…
We’ll turn cold again tonight with lows dropping back into the middle 30s under mostly clear skies. Through the day ahead of us, we’ll have partly sunny skies return ahead of our next storm system coming from the west…
Even with the cloud cover picking up through the day, highs on Wednesday look pretty good as we’ll top out in the middle to upper 50s…
The skies will turn mostly cloudy as we roll into Thursday. Most of the day will be dry, though. Once we get into the late afternoon and especially the evening, that’s when a little activity will pick up as the system continues to work on through…
By late Thursday afternoon and evening, this system will give us some scattered showers across the region. There is a chance for some of those showers to stick around as we head into early Friday morning below, but the AM drive for Friday looks dry as the system clears out…
If you’re curious as to how we look for the rest of the week and the rest of the month, Doug put out his month-long forecast last night. If you missed it, you can catch it below…
Don’t forget that Doug also has your long range forecast into next January down below. Have a good night and a great Wednesday!
Long range forecast through late next January:

Next Week: A system develops right on top of us and mainly just east of us on Sunday. We will have several in this pattern that seem to get going just a hair east of the region. So showers chances on Sunday and Monday, turning much cooler as well. Mainly a cold to cool week with rain and snow chances on Thursday and Friday.
