Strong cold front sends temperatures plunging — FIRST ALERT FORECAST

A strong cold front moving through central and southern MS will bring an end to the warm days we have had recently.

Cold arctic air will bring snow, hail and strong icy winds to the United Kingdom towards the end of the week, say weather forecasters. We'll go from the low 70s tomorrow to highs in the 40s by the end of the work week.

Extended forecast Tuesday: Partly sunny with a high of 37 degrees and a low of 26 degrees. Sunny and cool weather sticks around through the upcoming weekend with another possible freeze to start the morning on Sunday.

This process is most effective when winds are light, because colder air from aloft descends to the surface more readily, as the air isn't being mixed up by the wind. Temperatures will drop to 40° overnight. It's then the Parkland will have to say goodbye to the impressive stretch of warmth the region has experienced over the past couple of weeks, as it looks like southeast Missouri is heading into a prolonged cold period.

There'll be sunny spells and showers of rain, sleet and snow. "It will be very cold and get progressively colder coming into Friday".

The coldest temperature last week was -6C (42.8F) in Pershore, Worcestershire, on Thursday. Cold rain showers possibly return by Thursday evening, especially along the Grand Strand.

The coldest night of 2017 so far was January 30 when Braemar, Aberdeenshire, fell as low as -10.1C (13.8F). There will be heavy rain showers with an increased risk of sleet and snow showers towards the evening. Temperatures were in the lower 40's at the onset of this event but as the rain continued to fall, well so did the temperatures.

From Friday it will feel bitterly cold with temperatures struggling to get above freezing.
