Tracking rounds of rain and storms through Friday

TONIGHT: Scattered showers and a few storms overnight. Mostly cloudy with lows in the upper 50s.

TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder. Highs in the upper 60s.

EXTENDED: A strong low pressure system to our north is pulling a frontal system through the region, bringing warm and unstable air to Mid-Missouri, potentially triggering a few storms by early evening along the cold front. Some of those storms could be on the stronger side with isolated gusty winds and heavy downpours. As the front stalls across the central part of the state, showers and storms will fill back in as energy rides up along the boundary into tomorrow and Friday. Temperatures will be slightly cooler tomorrow, especially west of Highway 63 where the front has passed. As low pressure finally passes to our north on Friday, the majority of the rain moves out by mid-late afternoon, with a few lingering showers possible into early evening. Highs only make it to the low to mid-60s during the day. As clouds clear, we'll see temperatures drop like a rock into the low 40s overnight, making it chilly for high school football. It's a cool start to the weekend in the low 40s, so bring the layers if you're heading out to the Mizzou football game on Saturday morning. The afternoon will be beautiful with highs in the low 60s, and we end the weekend on a beautiful note with sunshine and near 70 on Sunday. Next week starts off dry with highs in the lower 70s, and we're dry through at least early Wednesday.
