Hit and miss showers are expected Thursday as a trough of low pressure swings through Mid-Missouri. A large storm system spinning up over Iowa will slowly move east through the day Thursday, keeping our weather unsettled. A few showers are possible in the morning from 7-10 mainly north of I-70. These will become more numerous through the afternoon with isolated thunderstorms possible. Rain will end by 9 PM.
Higher pressure building behind this system will send a weak cold front through Missouri Friday, giving us light northerly winds, plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures reaching the lower 70s.
Winds will shift back around to the south, ushering in warmer air for the weekend. Saturday looks like a pleasant spring day with high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s, light winds and mostly sunny skies.
Sunday will be warm and a bit more breezy as southerly winds pick up to 20 mph at times in the afternoon with a few clouds developing late in the day. We are watching a cold front to the west which could send a line of showers and t-storms into western Missouri as early as 7 PM, slowly moving east through the night. While most of the day looks dry Sunday, storms could increase Sunday evening as the front approaches.
