TONIGHT: Skies remain clear this evening, allowing temperatures to once more drop into the lower 40s area wide. Locations along and north of Hwy 24 could see temperatures briefly fall into the upper 30s. We’ll see winds gradually shift out of the southeast providing the start of a warming trend that will carry us through the middle of the week.
MONDAY: As we head into the work week, the sunshine will stick around and temperatures will warm into the mid 70s for Monday. Southerly winds up to 15 mph will help pump in the warm air. Gusts may be as high as 25 mph. Skies will remain clear and humidity will be low.
EXTENDED: The warming trend continues into Tuesday as temperatures will reach near 80 degrees. Clouds will gradually be on the increase through Tuesday ahead of our next storm system we are tracking. There is currently a marginal risk for severe storms as we head into Tuesday evening after 8 PM, for southwest Mid-Missouri. This will be the onset of a very unsettled weather pattern that will bring us cooler temperatures to close out the week and heavy rain likely each and every day. As we head into the latter half of next week, the rain looks to once again bring a flooding threat to Mid-Missouri, as current estimates look to bring about 3+” of rain.
