Early Monday AM May 13th - Warming trend will continue

Watching t-storm chances later this week

JOPLIN, Mo. - Good early Monday morning, everyone. It was nice of Mother Nature to treat us with a nice Sunday to wrap up the weekend. Our Mother's Day may have started off on a cool note with lows in the upper 40s, but we were able to rebound into the upper 60s yesterday afternoon. Even with morning clouds, a few morning showers and a few random t-storms during the afternoon, that didn't stop us from finally warming back up. We may be seeing some patchy fog this morning, but we're keeping quiet on the radar below...

Looking to the work wwek ahead, we'll thankfully continue our warming trend that we started yesterday. Once we get past any patchy morning fog, mostly sunny skies today will allow highs to climb back to about 70 degrees across the area. We'll have quite a warm up by the middle of the week. Even with that going on, we could have minor t-storm chances sneak by before we see our next stronger system by the weekend. Your full forecast is right below...


Don't forget that Doug has your long range forecast out through the middle of July down below.

Have a great Monday!
