TODAY: Overcast skies will stick with us through the day, with a northeasterly breeze under 10 mph. Thanks to the clouds, temperatures will struggle to climb into the lower 60s today. Outside of the clouds, it will be a seasonal day, with a break in the rain.
TONIGHT: Overcast skies stay with us through the evening, with an easterly wind under 12 mph. Patchy fog is likely by daybreak, so give yourself plenty of time to get where you need to go. Temperatures overnight will reach the upper 40s before storms arrive on Wednesday morning.
EXTENDED: There is a slight risk for severe weather in parts of Mid-Missouri. There looks to be two rounds of possible heavy rain on Wednesday, first early in the morning, and the second in the evening. The first round looks to move into the Ozarks between 4AM and 6AM, lifting northeast towards Columbia and Jefferson City between 5AM and 7AM. This is the start up time. The first round of storms moves out between 10AM and 11AM, leaving for some dry time during the day. The second round increases by 7PM, it looks like near northwest Mid-Missouri, with a second band developing near the Ozarks and I-44 at this time. Rain will become widespread Wednesday night into Thursday morning where most locations will pick up 1″ to 2.5″ of much needed rain. We’ll need to watch for all modes of severe weather possible on Wednesday. Please check back for updates and follow ABC17Stormtrack on Twitter and ABC17News on Facebook for updates as well.
