THIS AFTERNOON: We’re tracking a mix of clouds and sun this afternoon. Temperatures respond well and top out in the low 80s. Winds will be gusty out of the southwest up to 25 mph.
TONIGHT: We’ll seem more clouds build in this evening with winds remaining out of the south. That will keep us mild overnight, in the low 60s.
EXTENDED: The ABC 17 StormTrack Weather Team has issued a Weather Alert Day for Wednesday night ahead of a chance for strong storms. The middle of the week will bring more changes to Mid-Missouri. Another strong area of low pressure will move across the Midwest, cooling us down to end the week. As storms develop ahead of the cold front late Wednesday, some storms may become strong to severe. The Storm Prediction Center has us in a slight risk for severe weather. The threat includes all modes of severe weather, but large hail looks to be the primary risk. Damaging winds in excess of 58 mph and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out. As storms enter into mid-Missouri after 10 PM the severe threat will begin to diminish through the morning. Some stronger storms can’t be ruled out through the night. Behind this, showers and t-storms may linger into Thursday as temperatures dip back into the upper 50s for highs. Easter weekend looks gorgeous with sunshine and highs in the 60s and 70s.
