Ready for spring? It's hard to think that just yesterday it was snowing. Today we'll warm up to near 70 degrees.
Southwest winds bring another stretch of very warm, near-record temperatures through early next week. But a cold front Monday night into Tuesday knocks temperatures back down closer to normal. Showers and thunderstorms are expected as the front moves through.
The next best chance of rain across the area will come Monday into Tuesday as a cold front moves through the forecast area. Chances for rain are 40-80% across the area, with a 30% chance for thunderstorms.
Monday, March 4th, the St. Louis Doppler Radar (KLSX) will be taken out of service for up to TWO WEEKS to replace a major component - the radar antenna pedestal. This repair is critical to extend the life of the radar for years to come. During this time, the radar cannot be turned on if severe weather hits, but there are multiple other radars that will be used to provide coverage. Please see the graphic for more information, along with this short informational video. https://youtu.be/H8lYTP342gc
