Rainy, Blustery Holiday Weekend Ahead
Your Thanksgiving trip to Grandma's house will be a soggy and blustery one in northeast Missouri and western Illinois.
National Weather Service forecasters say a chance of showers moves into the area Wednesday night, with a better chance of rain Thursday, Thursday night and Friday.
The chance of precip remains through Monday night, with percentages running from 40 to 50 percent beginning Friday night.
Blustery winds will also be a part of the mix, with south winds up to 20 miles per hour Wednesday through Thursday night, shifting to the north and becoming more gusty Friday.
The good news is that temperatures will stay warm enough to keep the snow away. After highs in the upper 50s Wednesday and the mid 60s Thursday, highs will fall into the mid 40s through the weekend.
Lows will only fall to the low 50s Wednesday night and to the upper 30s Thursday night, then will hover in the mid 30s through Monday.
