TONIGHT: A stormy night for Mid-Missouri is on tap, with heavy rain and strong storms likely through 10 PM. This evening, most of the strong storms will exist east of Hwy 63. There will likely be rain and some storms overnight, while the severe threat looks low at this time. By 10PM many locations could have 1″ of rain on the ground. Winds look to remain from the south/southeast tonight at 8-12 mph, with gusts up to 20. Lows tonight will be in the mid 50s once more.
SATURDAY: Keep those indoor plans, as rain and storms will be ongoing through most of the day on Saturday. No severe weather is likely, but any storms we do see will be efficient rainfall producers. There will likely be breaks in the rain towards mid-morning and the afternoon, but most locations will be wet for most of the day. An additional 1 to 2 inches of rain is likely. Winds do subside as we head into Saturday, out of the southeast under 12 mph. Highs for the day will climb in the mid to upper 60s.
EXTENDED: By Sunday, the rain will come to an end for most of Mid-Missouri. Outside of a few morning showers, the afternoon into the evening will be dry. After 8 PM, showers will begin to track into southwestern Mid-Missouri, ahead of our next system that will arrive by Monday. This system will bring us cooler conditions for Monday, with the rain exiting east of US 63 on Monday afternoon between 3PM and 5PM. More active weather looks possible for next week on Wednesday.
