TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and breezy with lows in the low 70s. South winds up to 20 mph at times.
TOMORROW: Storms likely by afternoon. A few may be strong with isolated damaging wind gusts and heavy rain. Rainfall amounts between 1-2". Highs in the upper 80s.
EXTENDED: A cold front situated to our north will bring a chance for a few showers across our far northern counties by early tomorrow, with storms filling in along and ahead of the cold front during the day. Some of these storms may pose an isolated damaging wind threat along with 1-2" of rain through Friday, however, the severe threat looks less widespread so we have not issued a Weather Alert Day at this time. Showers and a few rumbles of thunder continue into Friday for the southern half of the area into the afternoon, with decreasing coverage by evening. The cold front will settle across Mid-Missouri on Friday but is trending toward moving south of us more quickly, meaning our chances of rain will be lower over the weekend. As the front settles across southern MO Saturday and Sunday, rain chances will be highest across areas along and south of I-44. If it ends up moving a little more slowly over the next few days, we could end up with more. Temperatures fall into the low 80s this weekend with the front south of us, but begin to warm back up toward the middle and end of next week as high pressure begins to build out west once again and move overhead.
