How long will the cold air stick around?
QUINCY (WGEM) -
Well get ready gang for what will be our coldest air or so far of the season. Temperatures could drop down into the mid to upper teens for a couple of areas Friday morning. High pressure is right over top of us as a cold front has progressed to the east. In the wake of that cold front that high pressure is really scouring out the cloud cover making a mostly clear sky overnight. That high pressure is forecast to slide off to the southeast for your Friday. As the high pressure gives way it will allow some cloud cover back in to forecast. Our next storm system is just off to the west by Friday night. The next cold front starts to slice through parts of north western Iowa into northwestern Missouri by Saturday morning. In our area Saturday morning we will be looking at cloud cover and possibly a little bit of a light sprinkle. But for the most part this next weather system or cold front will just bring in another reinforcing shot of cold air. So while temperatures warm on Saturday up to 55 degrees. Temperatures on Sunday will be colder by about 10° topping out at in the mid 40s. That cold air is short-lived as we get into Monday we will see temperatures top out at around 60 degrees. The warmer air continues through next week with temperatures on the mild side, a couple of days we may see temperatures reach up to near 60 degrees.
