Another area of low pressure will move across the state Tuesday morning, bringing a chance of rain, thunderstorms and snow to Mid-Missouri through Tuesday. The work week will start off nice with temperatures reaching the upper 60s Monday. Clouds will increase Monday evening, leading to rain by 2 AM Tuesday near HWY 65.
There will be enough moisture and lift ahead of this system to produce thunderstorms which will start off in Oklahoma and moving northeast into the Lake of the Ozarks after 3 AM. Areas south of I-70 have the best chance of a few storms through daybreak Tuesday. Storms are not expected to be severe but there is a chance of small hail and heavy downpours. Rainfall amounts are expected to be the highest at the Lake of the Ozarks and near I-44 where an inch of rain is possible. Areas farther north will see a quarter to half inch of rain with lower amounts north of I-70.
Rain will push north and east quickly, heading east of HWY 63 by noon Tuesday. On the backside of this system though, a few snow showers could develop Tuesday afternoon mainly east of HWY 63 but no accumulation is expected.
Our next chance of rain moves in late Wednesday night through early Thursday. This looks like mainly a rain-maker but some snow could mix in north of I-70.
