Late Thursday October 17th - Storm systems lining up

First of which will work in early this weekend

JOPLIN, Mo. - Good late Thursday evening, everyone. Our Thursday turned out to be a pretty good day. Once we got past the cool start, mostly sunny skies worked together with a south breeze to warm us back to about 70 degrees this afternoon. We're headed for another cool start to our Friday, but we'll keep the overnight quiet on the radar below...

Looking at the next several days, we have quite a few storm systems that are lining up for us. A couple of these systems will be working through the area this weekend. Fortunately, it won't be a washout this weekend, and we'll continue to stay mild. We'll time out those rain chances, plus see how the week ahead is shaping up, down below...

Don't forget that Doug has your long range forecast out into the latter part of November down below. Have a good night and a great Friday!
