TONIGHT: A line of scattered showers and t-storms will move in from the northwest after 10 PM, slowly moving southeast through the morning hours. As the storms move in, there could be isolated severe storms with large hail or strong wind gusts in our northwestern counties. Temperatures will fall to the lower 60s by morning.
THURSDAY: The line of showers & t-storms moves south of I-70 through the morning, becoming more spotty through the afternoon. These will start to lift back to the north later in the afternoon and evening so keep the umbrella handy! Temperatures will be cool, only reaching near 60 north of HWY 24 to the upper 60s in the Ozarks with northeast winds at 8-12 mph.
EXTENDED: The front lifts back to the north as a warm front Thursday night, bringing the better chance of t-storms north of I-70 into early Friday morning. Much warmer air moves in as winds shift to the south and temperatures will climb into the upper 80s Friday, with drier conditions through the afternoon. Storms are possible north of HWY 24 Friday evening and overnight with dry weather farther south. The possibility for showers & storms continues through the weekend as the frontal system drifts back to the south and may stall out overhead. This early out it’s hard to pin down exact rainfall totals, but by this time next week we can expect heavy rainfall accumulation across the middle of the country. Areas north of I-70 may see 2-3″ by Monday, with areas south coming in closer to 1-2″.Weekend temperatures will range from the low 70s Saturday to the upper 70s Sunday. Monday has trended drier and will be warm as we climb into the mid 80s for Columbus Day. Storm activity will pick up again into the middle of next week with changeable temperatures.
