On the rise, briefly

High pressure centered just to the east of the Show-Me State combined with a weak warm front will bring brief relief to Mid-Missouri on Wednesday. Highs will be about 15 degrees warmer than Tuesday in the lower-mid 30s. Unfortunately, the warm up will be short-lived. A strong cold front will slide south during the afternoon hours causing temperatures to plummet. Thanks to a tightening pressure gradient, winds will be strong from the northwest through the evening and nighttime hours.

A Wind Chill Advisory will be in effect from 9 PM Wednesday through 12 PM Thursday. With temperatures hovering near zero, wind chills will be between minus 10-15 through the early parts of Thursday. The winds will subside for the afternoon, but highs will remain frigid in the lower-mid teens.
