Up and down, plus two shots for precip

We’re in cool down mode here in west central Missouri and eastern Kansas on this Monday. Temperatures across the area will be in the upper 30s thanks to a disturbance that moved through overnight.

Clearing skies and light northerly winds behind the frontal boundary will cool us down. A ridge of high pressure will begin to shift to the east, which will move us into an area a warmer conditions beginning on Tuesday.

Of concern on Tuesday are the strong southerly winds. Wind speeds of 15 to 20 m.p.h. with gusts of up to 30 m.p.h. are possible. Dry conditions still abound, but conditions aren’t as bad as last week, as the humidity levels are above 30-percent.

That being said, outdoor burning should be avoided if at all possible.

Wednesday will see even daytime temperatures as we reach the top of the hill. Temperatures on Wednesday will be in the upper 50s across the region.

Things slide down the slope on Thursday as our next system moves through. A chance for rain and possibly a winter mix for the early morning hours. Not a great chance, but some of us could see a few sprinkles and quite possibly a few flakes.

Thursday and Friday, daytime highs will be in the mid to upper 30s. A bit warmer, on Saturday.

Our second chance of precipitation moves through on Sunday morning. This looks like another hit or miss chance, and right now my confidence on this event isn’t that great. However, I’ve put a 20 percent chance for precipitation on the seven-day forecast for Sunday.

Here’s your Quickcast:

Today: Some morning clouds then clearing. Highs in the upper 30s.

Tonight: Mostly clear skies. Lows in the lower 20s.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny skies, windy and warmer. Strong southerly winds of 15 to 20 m.p.h. Gusts to 30 m.p.h. Highs in the lower 50s.

Tuesday night: Mostly clear skies. Lows near 40 degrees.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy skies, not as windy. Highs in the upper 50s.
