A clipper system brought a dusting of snow for most of mid-Missouri last night. It stayed sunny for most of the day, but clouds rolled in before sundown. We woke up to temps in the 20s and wind gusts to 23 mph. out of the WNW. A nice warm up is in store for us this week as a ridge approaches from the west. This is the time of year that the forecast discussions tend to include chances of thunderstorms ahead of a front, followed by snow as the cold air spills in from the north of the associated low. This may be the case for us by mid-week.
