People in the Parkland would do well to take an umbrella with them if they go anywhere outdoors today, because it’s likely to be a little bit soggy.
The National Weather Service forecasts that rain that entered the region Sunday evening will continue throughout today and possibly into the early evening. In addition to the rain, winds will gust from 15 to 25 mph and the area may see an occasional thunderstorm or two thrown into the mix, as well. The area may see as much as a half-inch of rain before the front moves out sometime tonight, leaving clear conditions overnight.
Along with the wet weather, expect a typical Missouri fall day with temperatures starting in the upper-30s in the morning and climbing into the mid-50s later in the day.
The rest of the week promises clear to partly cloudy skies through Saturday with highs Tuesday in the lower-60s and dropping into the 40s Thursday through Saturday.
After a little rain Sunday, NWS forecasts clear skies into the first part of next week with below freezing temps possible in the mornings and temperatures rising to the lower-50s during the daylight hours.
