St. Louis forecast: Rain chances Tuesday and Thursday

After sunset Monday, it's doubtful there will be much sunshine for the rest of the workweek.

ST. LOUIS — After a bit of sunshine Monday afternoon, clouds will be the theme for much of the rest of the week. Rain chances return Tuesday and again late Wednesday night into Thursday. Wintry weather is not expected this week as temperatures remain above average for the beginning of December.

Passing light showers are expected for Tuesday with afternoon highs close to 50. Wednesday should be dry through much of the day with rain developing again by Wednesday night through Thursday. Rain during this time frame could be steady and heavier with locally more than an inch of rainfall in the heavier rain bands.

Rain should clear away by Thursday evening with the return of dry weather to kick off the weekend. Another system will be approaching on Sunday night bringing more rain chances by next Monday and Tuesday.

Later next week and heading toward Christmas, it appears a colder pattern will develop across the Midwest. It's unclear if there will be enough moisture to produce any wintry weather.
