TONIGHT: Another warm night is expected for Mid-Missouri ahead of an approaching cold front. Temperatures will only drop into the mid 60s with a steady south breeze near 10 mph. A line of spotty showers and storms will then begin to approach Mid-Missouri after midnight and track to the southeast. The storms will lose steam the further south they track, but any storms that do form have the potential for damaging winds and quarter size hail.
THURSDAY: Showers and a few t-storms will start the day, pushing south of I-70 through the morning and ending by early afternoon near I-44. Temperatures will stay in the 60s with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a west-northwest breeze up to 10 mph.
EXTENDED: A strong storm system will track to our south Friday through Saturday and will bring periods of rain to Mid-Missouri. Rain will increase Friday morning in the Ozarks and gradually move north to I-70 by mid-afternoon and north into the evening hours. It will be cool Friday with high temperatures in the upper 50s, cooling to the upper 40s for highs Saturday. Rain will be on and off through Saturday morning before tapering off from west to east through the afternoon Saturday. Heavy rain is possible and we’ll need to monitor for possible flooding Friday night and Saturday as rainfall amounts are expected to reach 1 to 3 inches from I-70 south with highest totals closer to I-44. Rainfall amounts will drop off to a half inch north of I-70. Sunday looks like a dry and pleasant day with mostly sunny skies, light northerly winds and high temperatures in the mid to upper 60s.
