ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - A spring like weather pattern continues as strong southerly flow remains ahead of our next storm system that's currently draped across the Great Plains.  Highs today were around 30 degrees above average, with a new record high temperature of 72º, beating the previous record high of 70º set back in 1991.

Changes are on the way, though!  As the mentioned cold front currently across Kansas and Nebraska slides towards the bi-state, heavy clouds continue to build and rain chances return.  Most of Saturday night remains dry with only an isolated sprinkle expected.  Look for scattered, light rain showers the first half of Sunday, beginning early morning.  The heaviest and most widespread rain continues to set up for Sunday afternoon-evening with rainfall amounts of 1.00-1.50" in the forecast.  Isolated thunder cannot be ruled out late day Sunday.  Temps remain mild with highs in the mid-upper 60s.  Look for windy conditions as south winds gust to 25-30 mph.

Drier, cooler, and breezy days return for the work week.
