Metro-East News

Dry weather, cooler temperatures on the way

Showers are expected to taper off Wednesday morning.

But the cold front that brought soaking rain to the metro-east will keep temperatures low through the rest of the week.

There is a 30 percent chance of showers Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Clouds gradually break up as the day goes on. The high will be 64 but it will seem much cooler with gusts of wind of up to 24 mph.

Skies will continue to clear Tuesday night when the low will drop to 41. The wind will continue with gusts of up to 21 mph.

On Thursday, skies will be sunny but the high temperature will only reach 58. That’s about five degrees cooler that the average high temperature for Oct. 29 in the St. Louis area, 63.

Winds will gust up to 22 mph.

Thursday night, the low will dip to 38 under mostly clear skies.

Skies will be sunny with a high of 62 Friday. But a 40 percent chance of rain will move into the area by Friday night when the low will be 46.

The chance of rain will increase to 70 percent Saturday with a high of 58. But the potential of rain drop to 30 percent during the evening hours, hopefully allowing trick-or-treaters to stay dray.
