Warm days and rain chances this week

The first half of the work week will continue to be warm and mainly dry as the storm track stays well to our north. There is a slight rain chance Tuesday but a better rain chance comes Friday.

An upper level disturbance carried in with the upper level winds will move through northern Missouri Tuesday, bringing clouds and mid-level moisture. Due to dry air at lower levels, most areas will stay dry Tuesday. There is a slight chance of a shower or sprinkles north of I-70 from late morning through afternoon but the chance is low.

Warm air continues to move in with southerly surface winds through Wednesday, bringing temperatures up 10-15 degrees above normal. High temperatures will reach the upper 70s to near 80 Tuesday and Wednesday.

A weak cold front will bring a few clouds and slightly cooler temperatures Thursday but rain is not expected. However, an upper level low pressure area spinning in the southwestern states, picking up tropical moisture is forecast to move to the northeast and merge with a northern wave sending a line of showers & t-storms through Missouri Friday followed by cooler air.

Rain is expected to develop in western Missouri by mid-morning Friday, spreading east through the day and early evening to to near I-44 by Saturday morning, ending early as cooler, drier air moves in for the weekend. A few t-storms are possible but severe weather is not expected. A quarter to half inch of rain is expected.
