Rain/snow mix possible before cooling down (11/14/22)
While we managed to reach the upper 40s on Monday, more clouds have been rolling in as a system develops off to the west. That system will be the reason we see a mix of rain and snow throughout our coverage area based on air temperatures. Cooler air will be also located with some forcing off to the west and north of Cape Girardeau, with those spots more likely to experience snow showers throughout this evening’s round of precipitation.
Minor snowfall accumulations are expected with this system Monday night off to the north and west of our area. As for the rain to the southeast of Farmington, Mount Vernon and areas that stay above freezing, rainfall could be a tenth of an inch to a quarter of an inch as scattered showers move through.
Some lingering shower chances through the early morning hours on Tuesday will quickly clear out for a mostly dry day. Clouds will linger for most of the day with more sunshine later on. Despite the return of some sun, we will continue to get colder this week.
Heading into the weekend, temperatures will eventually drop back into the 30s and stay far below normal for this time of year. Then, we start to warm up this weekend and stay dry as the holiday week kicks off toward the end of November.
