FRIDAY: Rain showers chances have sped up. We’re likely to see showers push into our western counties by lunch time and kick east through the afternoon hours along and north of I-70. A rumble of thunder is possible but no severe storms are expected. Rain should move out by 8pm. Highs reach in the upper 70s.
TONIGHT: We’ll be dry through ~11pm with more rain & storm chance picking up into the early morning hours Saturday. Rain showers are possible out the door Saturday. Lows dip into the 60s.
EXTENDED: We’re tracking an increasing severe weather threat for Saturday as we look to dry out and see some sunshine after morning rain showers. Depending on how fast we clear out will determine how quickly we can develop that severe risk. As of right now, the strongest storms look to fire in the evening hours, mostly after 4pm with the greatest threats being large hail and damaging winds. An isolated tornado can’t be ruled out, but that threat looks slim at the moment. Of course, the heavy rain that falls from these storms will not help the “improving” flooding conditions. Several rounds of rain and storms will push into Mid-Missouri throughout the next 7 days. We’ll continue to track the flooding threat well into next week.
