Saint Louis, MO

Cold Weather Expected for Saint Louis

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Following the passage of a cold front over the area overnight, a surface high is heading into the region this morning.

The first northwesterly low and mid-level flow behind the cold front will advect colder air into the area, resulting in temperatures that are several degrees lower today than they were yesterday, even though the sun will be shining brightly under a cloudless sky.

The maximum temperatures will be in the low to mid-40s, which is usual for this time of year.

This afternoon, the low-level ridge axis will have pushed through the CWA, resuming southwestern flow across the area. This flow is expected to continue through Thursday as a low-level ridge builds over the Southeast United States.

It will be warm for many days to come, thanks to a strong WAA along with this low-level flow, with the first of these days being on Thursday. Weather conditions have been extreme on previous days under the WAA regime.

Temperatures are not expected to be restricted by the partially cloudy sky; in fact, it is forecast that a few rays of sunshine will offer an additional boost to already record-breaking temperatures.

As a result, we have high confidence that we will achieve, if not surpass, high temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s, which corresponds to the NBM's 75th percentile maximum temperatures.
