THURSDAY: The rain will push to the south through the morning with some showers lingering near I-44 through the afternoon. Areas farther north will have mostly cloudy skies and stay dry. It will stay cool with highs in the mid to upper 50s and light winds from the north.
TONIGHT: Rain that hangs out in our southern counties will continue to push off to the southeast. Overnight clouds will briefly clear ahead of our next cold front. With clear skies tonight temperatures are going to drop into the upper 30s.
EXTENDED: Another cold front will drop south Friday, bringing another chance of rain and keeping us in the low 50s Friday afternoon. Showers will be spotty and end by Friday evening and lows will drop into the mid 30s overnight. The active weather pattern sticks around as we head into the weekend with rain possible north of I-70 Saturday. Sunday brings a better chance for rain as another cold front tracks though, as we start off the week on a cloudy and damp note. The unsettled pattern continues through next Tuesday with rain chances continuing. Rainfall accumulations the next seven days could top out near two inches for parts of Mid-Missouri, which will effectively end our drought for all of us if we see that much rain.
