After a hot, sticky and in some places wet weekend, a summer blast of arctic air results in a very nice, and perhaps record-setting, week in northeast Missouri and western Illinois.

The National Weather Service calls for a chance of showers and thunderstorms Monday afternoon and evening. Severe storms are not expected, although small hail and winds up to 45 miles per hour are a possibility.

After the rain chance moves out Monday night, a weather pattern uncharacteristic for mid-July moves in.

Highs are not expected to get out of the 70s until Saturday, with lows in the low 50s Monday and Tuesday, and the mid 50s to around 60 through Friday.

Incidentally, record lows for this week in Hannibal are in the 60s and 70s.

The next chance of showers and thunderstorms is forecast for Saturday night and Sunday.
