Tracking a mild and cloudy week with multiple rain chances

TODAY: Monday brings more mild weather, with a steady south to southwest breeze brining temperatures back into the mid-50s. With a steady stream of clouds moving in from the west at the top of the atmosphere, and off and on low clouds through the day, we should see mostly cloudy skies for much of the day, but some sunshine will likely peek through at times. Some of that low level moisture may be enough to bring a pop up shower south of I-70 this afternoon, but overall, Monday is mostly dry.

TONIGHT: A surface boundary is situated directly north of us today, and will likely meander just south of us overnight, turning our winds back from the north. This keeps us cloudy overnight, but still cooling. We'll start Tuesday with temperatures in the high 30s.

EXTENDED: The boundary or stationary front will settle across the southern half of the region, or just to our south early Tuesday, where a surface low will start to enter the region along the boundary. This boundary will act like a road, and guide the low through the region, as it passes by just south of mid-Missouri. This keeps best rain chances to our south, but some of the moisture will work in over the boundary, bringing us a chance for some light showers on Tuesday, making for a cold rainy day. Temperatures look to stay warm enough through the entirety of the period, keeping us safe from any wintry weather. That should be the case the rest of the forecast as well, as rain chances increase. On Wednesday, the boundary lifts further north, allowing for better rain chances along and south, as well as temperatures back in the low 50s. Rain chances are the best this week on Thursday, as we look to take a more direct hit from another passing low pressure system. This brings the best chance at widespread rain, as well as more mild, 50 degree air. We'll dip into the 40s behind this system, with a short run of dry weather, before rain chances start to tick back up into the weekend.
