The forecast Monday calls for much cooler -- but much calmer weather -- than the day before.
According to the National Weather Service, the high Monday in the metro-east will be 56 degrees under sunny skies. It will remain clear overnight with a low of 33. On Tuesday skies are expected to be mostly sunny with a high of 55 degrees.
The high of 80 degrees in St. Louis Sunday was a record, shattering the previous mark of 74 set in 1971. The warmer than usual weather fueled violent storms that spawned several tornadoes to the north and west of the metro-east.
The extended forecast calls for temperatures to decline as the week goes on. By the weekend the high temperature is expected to be stuck in the 30s.
