(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) We have already seen some warmer temperatures. We have also seen some nice snow melt.

And it continues gradually over the next 36 hours, with highs today and Saturday well above average.

Once we get through a very nice Saturday, a huge cold front comes through and sweeps all of that warm air out, leaving us quite literally in the cold.

Frigid temperatures prevail on Sunday and Monday, with at least a return to near-freezing temperatures by New Years Eve.
