Tracking a mild week, with storm chances this weekend

TODAY: Wednesday is starting mostly sunny, and possibly a bit foggy as clouds clear out before sunrise. With clearing skies, a calm to light breeze, and plenty of moisture after yesterday's rain, fog may be a concern early on. Otherwise, mostly sunny skies will dominate the forecast the first half of the day, before some cumulus clouds develop this afternoon, lending to a more partly cloudy sky cover. Temperatures climb to near 80 with today's sunshine. Winds are light and out of the northeast.

TONIGHT: Skies will clear overnight, and winds stay light and out of the north and northeast. Temperatures fall into the low 60s again early Thursday.

EXTENDED: More cumulus clouds return Thursday afternoon, and it's a degree or two warmer than Wednesday. Friday, winds turn more southerly, warming us into the mid 80s. A chance for storms enters from the west. Storm clusters may be winding down to our west overnight, so chances for rain in mid-MO are relatively low. Better chances return Saturday as low level jet winds get closer to mid-Missouri. These will likely drive thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and evening. Depending on progression of Saturday's storms, more development may occur further south and east in mid-MO on Sunday. A slight chance for storms remains in the forecast on Monday, but largely drier conditions are forecast for early next week. Temperatures are capped in the 80s through early next week.
