Fall officially began today with the occurrence of the autumnal equinox and mother nature has really taken note of the calendar, but warmer air will come our way this weekend.
Thursday Morning: Temperatures are expected to be in the middle 40s for the morning hours. The last time we officially hit the 40s at the Columbia Regional Airport was May 30th (44°). #MidMoWx #MoWx #MidMo pic.twitter.com/uvI8lCTt1R— Matt Beckwith (@KOMUMatt) September 22, 2021
After a chilly morning temperatures will quickly warm to the middle 70s in the afternoon. Skies look to be abundantly sunny with a light northwesterly wind.
Winds will remain light for Friday, but will shift out of the south, helping temperatures warm into the lower 80s for the afternoon with mostly sunny skies.
Cloud cover is expected to increase overnight as a weak cold front pushes through the state. This front will not have much moisture to work with, but an increase in cloud cover is expected.
Temperatures will be a touch cooler on Saturday with highs in the upper 70s. Highs will return to the middle and upper 80s for Sunday through the early part of next week.
Overall, our dry pattern looks to continue with a slight dip in temperatures around the middle of next week.
