ST. LOUIS – Skies have become mostly cloudy and temperatures are falling.

A few light sprinkles or flurries may pass by late Thursday and early Friday morning. Low temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 30s Thursday night.

Winds will still blow overnight and early Friday at about 10-20 mph with gusts reaching 30 mph.

Friday will start off mostly cloudy, chilly and breezy, but the winds will continue to relax later in the day.

Friday night the skies will be clear, and more sunshine is expected Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will gradually warm over the coming week.

The high Saturday will be near 50°, and you can expect low 50s Sunday and Monday. It will warm a few degrees each day after that.

Our medium range global models point to shower chances Wednesday. But aside from that most of the week is looking really good.

Quick note on the Mississippi River... water levels are rising and moderate flooding is expected at Louisiana MO, and Clarksville Lock and Dam by late next week.  Moderate flooding is expected at Grafton by the following weekend.  We will be watching and keeping everyone updated over the coming days.
