(KPLR)-St. Louis is enjoying a breezy and warm Sunday with temperatures climbing into the 50°s. But as is the trend these days, the warm weather won’t stick around. A very strong cold front will come racing through the Bi-State Sunday night.

There is a chance of fast hit of some light rain and snow as the front moves through, but the real story will be the big temperature change. Strong northwest winds will help temperatures fall into the single digits by early Monday morning. A Wind Advisory has been issued for most of the St. Louis area overnight. Wind gusts of 30 to 50 mph are possible. Wind chill values will fall to between -5° to -15° across the area and stay there much of Monday.

The deep, Arctic cold will be around through Tuesday.
