Temperatures in Columbia could creep close to the Oct. 25 record high of 86 degrees today.

Temperatures are expected to reach 84 degrees this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in St. Louis. The record for Oct. 25 was set in 1940.

After midnight, a big chill is expected to set in as winds shift northeast and the temperature drops 30 degrees or more.

"This morning will be mostly sunny with increasing clouds for this afternoon," said Karl Sieczynski, spokesman for the National Weather Service.

Siecyznski said rain is predicted for Wednesday and will likely end Thursday morning.

Thursday should be clear and with a low in the mid 30s.

Friday should be mostly sunny, with temperatures reaching the upper 50s, he said.
