Temps about to Crash

Today is starting out pretty nice around the KFVS viewing area. There is plenty of sunshine and temperatures are warming in to the 50°'s and 60°'s. However, it isn't going to last long.

At 10am CT, there is a cold front marching across Missouri. Temperatures range from 62° in Paducahy, KY --> 60° in Poplar Bluff, MO --> 46° in Farmington, MO --> 44° in West Plains, MO --> 38° in Rolla, MO --> 33° in Columbia, MO.

The cold front started to pass Farmington, MO at 10:00am CT. Although, I think the speed of the front is going to stall over the next couple of hours. That means that we have several more hours of good/nice weather today for the area.

Here is a look at this morning's run of the NAM forecast model for Cape Girardeau.

This model warms Cape Girardeau to the upper 60°'s by afternoon but then the temperatures crash. It appears that the model is forecasting the front to pass the area around 3:00pm or 4:00pm this afternoon.

The model also brings the rain in overnight. In fact, it holds off the rain until 5:00am Sunday. Through the weekend the model is putting down 0.9" of rain.
