Tausha Reed and her boyfriend, Brandon Lowe enjoy the warmer-than-usual weather Monday with Reed's dog, Morley, during a picnic lunch at Capen Park. Reed and Lowe were celebrating their six-month anniversary and chose to do something outside. Temperatures climbed to about 50 degrees at noon in Columbia.

COLUMBIA — The area's warm weekend weather stuck around Monday, reaching a high of 50 degrees.

Columbia fell short of the record high of 66 degrees set in 1952, said Julie Phillipson, a meteorologist with the Nation Weather Service in St. Louis. The low temperature for this day is -19 degrees, set in 1912.

The warm weather will give way to a roller coaster of temperatures through the end of the week.

Tuesday's high was expected at 41 degrees, with a small chance of rain changing to snow through the afternoon and wind gusts up to 40 mph, Phillipson said.

Wednesday is expected to be sunny with temperatures dropping to 29 degrees. Temperatures on Thursday are expected to be back up to 44 degrees before falling again on Friday to 25 degrees.
