TONIGHT: Scattered showers and storms possible through about midnight. A few storms may contain small hail and brief heavy rain. Lows in the upper 40s with wind gusts up to 30 mph.
TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy and warmer with scattered showers and storms possible again by afternoon. Highs in the low to mid-70s.
EXTENDED: Scattered showers and a few storms are possible tonight along and ahead of a cold front working through the region, but are expected to taper off overnight as the front stalls and settles across Mid-Missouri. Tomorrow, the front is expected to slowly start working its way north during the day, triggering another round of scattered showers and storms toward afternoon and evening. Some of those storms could produce brief heavy rain and small hail. As the front lifts north of Mid-Missouri on Thursday night into Friday, the highest chances of rain and storms will be across northern Missouri by Friday afternoon. We'll see gusty south winds and highs reaching the lower 80s Friday and Saturday afternoons. Another cold front is expected to work in from the west on Saturday, bringing another good dose of rain and a few storms Saturday night through Sunday. We'll pick up an additional 1-2" of rain with this system before it exits the area on Sunday night and cools us back into the 60s for highs.
