Staying far below average for some time (11/12/22)
And just like that, there’s a chill in the air as much of the area saw some light snow and flurries on Saturday. Some locally higher amounts of snow fell off to the northwest and to the northeast where some recorded 6″+ of snow. However, back near Cape Girardeau most reports were of half an inch if not less.
While it is wild to think some of us broke record highs this past Wednesday, we have now come crashing down to temperatures in the 30s and 40s. This is far below average for this time of the year, as a strong cold front passed through our area bringing us a taste of winter. This “taste” is going to last for the next several days, though.
Normal temperatures are usually in the upper 50s for this time of the year in November. But as you can see (below), temperatures are going to stay 10°+ below average through next week with a mix of sun and clouds. By Monday evening, we could see a mix of rain and snow once more for some much-needed precipitation.
