As the bulk of shower activity moves eastward this evening, only scattered, patchy drizzle will develop across Mid-Missouri tonight. Tomorrow, a storm system to our southwest will begin its ascent northeastward into our region in addition to a couple of upper-level disturbances that will sweep through our area throughout the day. This will cause chances for showers to increase, particularly after 1pm tomorrow.
The main chance for rain Sunday afternoon will be along and just south of I-70. However, the intensity of rainfall will be light, as those areas expected to see rainfall will only receive about a hundredth to a tenth of an inch.
Heavier rain will arrive as the center of the storm system itself moves through our area come Monday. This cut-off low will bring rounds of showers to mainly areas north of I-70, where the rain will become more widespread. The rain from this system will be heavier than a drizzle, bringing an additional quarter of an inch to our area, with heavier amounts possible in our northwestern counties.
Rain chances are expected to taper off heading into Tuesday morning, allowing us to become completely dry by Tuesday afternoon.
