COLUMBIA — The high temperature reached 59 degrees Saturday, more than 20 degrees above normal, but far short of the record 70 set in 1952, according to the National Weather Service. Wind gusts of 20 mph were reported.

The unusually warm weather won't last, however. The forecast high for Sunday is 36, with the temperature dropping to 13 overnight. A high of 20 is expected for Monday. For more details, check the Missourian's forecast page.
