The weekend will get off to a good start with plenty of sunshine and warming temperatures. Although it will be cool Saturday morning, southerly winds will warm our temperatures to the upper 60s by noon. It will be breezy and warm in the afternoon with winds at 15 mph, gusting as high as 25 mph and temperatures reaching into the mid to upper 70s Saturday.
The south breeze will keep temperatures mild Saturday night with lows near 60 under mostly clear skies. This will get our day off to a warm start Sunday with afternoon highs reaching close to 80 degrees. The winds will be stronger Sunday, gusting to 30 mph at times from the south. We’ll have more clouds around Sunday as a storm system approaches.
A line of showers and t-storms will move in Sunday night from the west ahead of a cold front which will track east through the night. This line is expected to reach HWY 65 from Sedalia to Marshall 8-9 PM and to HWY 63 and Columbia 11 PM to midnight. There is a chance that a few storms could become strong to severe with large hail or damaging winds with the best chance west of HWY 63.
