Scattered rain chances Sunday (2/25/23)
Temperatures ended in the middle 50s Saturday afternoon, with a milder evening expected ahead of us with increasing cloud cover. Overnight, temperatures will not fall that fast, with low temperatures starting in the low to mid 40s by Sunday morning.
With the increasing cloud cover, there will be scattered rain chance in the morning and throughout most of the day on Sunday. It will take most of the day for us to see our warmest temperatures by Sunday evening, as winds out of the south really start to pick up.
As a cold front is set to pass through, some rainfall will be around and just ahead of that feature as rain comes to an end Monday morning. The isolated and scattered chances to see rain will not end up adding to much through this event.
Because of this, most of the severe-end threats stay off to the west with the timing and development of these thunderstorms. We can’t rule out some stray thunderstorms making it into our area by the wee hours of Monday, but the chance dwindles as you get near Cape Girardeau and look east.
Following that setup, very windy conditions will develop on Monday with gusts of 40 to 55 mph likely. The next week from Monday through the beginning of March will look to remain dry for now.
