A storm system developing over the Southern Plains Friday will track to the northeast and move across Missouri Saturday night and Sunday, bringing up to 3 inches of rain to Mid-Missouri. Most areas will see 1.5″ to 2″ rain with pockets of 3 inches possible.
Ahead of this system, southerly winds will send warm air into Mid-Missouri, bringing temperatures up into the upper 60s Saturday. A few showers are possible Saturday morning but most rain holds off until after 4 p.m. The first half of Saturday looks drier but rain will become likely Saturday night.
Rain and t-storms increase west of HWY 63 late Saturday afternoon, spreading over all of Mid-Missouri Saturday evening. Storms are not expected to become severe but some will produce heavy rain through early Sunday morning. Rain will gradually move east and taper off from west to east Sunday afternoon through early evening as temperatures fall into the 40s late in the day.
Some showers are possible on the back side of the storm system Sunday night through daybreak Monday and could have some wet snow mixed in north of I-70. At this time, no accumulation is expected. Temperatures will drop into the low to mid 30s by Monday morning.
