Weekend storms and severe threat

A few storms are possible early in the day Saturday as a wave of low pressure aloft passes through. These will develop as early as midnight south of I-70 and spread to the northeast into Saturday morning and out of the area by noon. No severe weather is expected with these storms.

Most of Saturday afternoon and evening will stay dry but a spot storm is possible in the late afternoon mainly west of HWY 63. Temperatures will warm into the low to mid 80s Saturday with partly to mostly cloudy skies.

A line of storms is expected to develop in northwestern Missouri ahead of a cold front and move to the southeast Saturday night. This line of storms will affect our northwestern counties after 11 PM and head to the southeast to near I-44 through daybreak Sunday. Some of the storms will be strong as they move in with the possibility of severe storms capable of producing strong, damaging wind to 60 mph. These storms will also produce heavy rain. They will weaken as they push southeast through the overnight hours.

Rainfall amounts Saturday through AM Sunday are expected to be lower east of HWY 63 with up to a three quarters of an inch of rain. Higher amounts up to an inch and a half are possible west where stronger storms move through.

Most of the day Sunday will be dry and mild as northwesterly winds pick up to 15 mph in the afternoon, ushering in cooler, drier air. Skies will become mostly sunny by afternoon Sunday with high temperatures in the upper 70s.
