TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a chance for widely scattered showers and a few storms through Saturday morning. Lows in the upper 40s to around 50.
TOMORROW: Partly to mostly cloudy and cool for areas north of I-70, slightly warmer farther south. Most of the day is dry before a complex of storms arrives late tomorrow night and brings the possibility of heavy rain and strong winds. Highs in the low 60s.
EXTENDED: A Weather Alert Day is in effect overnight Saturday into Sunday for the threat of severe thunderstorms and heavy rain. A low pressure system across central Kansas will trigger isolated severe storms that eventually will grow upscale and move east Saturday night, arriving in Mid-Missouri after midnight through early Sunday morning. Storm chances look highest along and north of I-70, where damaging winds will be a concern before dawn. Heavy rain is also possible with 1-2" likely as this complex moves east through Sunday morning. Showers exit much of the area before noon on Sunday, leaving us cool and partly to mostly cloudy on Mother's Day. We'll see highs in the lower 60s, and the trend stays cooler than normal into next week with a Canadian high pressure diving south across the Great Lakes. This will keep us in the low 60s all week with lows in the low to mid-40s. The front stays to our south Monday into Tuesday, but another disturbance approaching from the west on Tuesday could bring the threat of more rain and a few storms through Wednesday. Temperatures warm into the mid-60s by the end of next week.
