ST. LOUIS — Clouds have been slow to clear Sunday, but at least the rain has moved on for the time being. The clearing trend will accelerate during the overnight hours as cooler than average weather continues. Overnight lows will drop back into the 40s in many places, near 50 in town.
Despite the chilly start early Monday, a good deal of sunshine, at times mixed with clouds, will allow temperatures to climb back into the upper 60s to lower 70s.
The dry weather doesn't last long. More showers are expected to move in during the day Tuesday. The rain chances will stay high through Tuesday night into Wednesday. High temperatures will remain a bit below average, in the low to mid 70s.
As we head toward Memorial Day weekend, a warmer pattern will develop. Rain chances overall look pretty low for the three day weekend with highs reaching the upper 80s close to 90 by Sunday and Monday.
