TONIGHT: Increasing clouds with a few storms possible through midnight. Lows remaining in the lower 60s.
TOMORROW: Decreasing clouds with gusty winds up to 30 mph. Highs reaching the lower 80s.
EXTENDED: As storms fill in and push north, not all of us will see rain, but a few locations could pick up some small to moderate hail. Storms will weaken as they move north along the boundary tonight, and rain chances will be limited by morning to northern Missouri. We're in for an even warmer day Friday with gusty winds and highs in the lower to mid-80s! The warmth sticks around to start the weekend on Saturday with gusts up to 30 mph from the southwest and highs in the low to mid-80s. We can expect more cloud cover by Saturday afternoon ahead of a cold front across the Plains that will bring a chance for rain and storms Saturday night into Sunday. Currently there is a level 2 severe weather risk for our counties along Highway 65, but the severe threat quickly drops off farther east. If the timing of the front looks to speed up at all on Saturday, we may need to issue a Weather Alert Day for wind and hail for areas west of Highway 63. Any strong storm threat will wane overnight Saturday into Sunday as temperatures cool. We also won't have very much instability to work with the entire day or evening, so that should keep severe storms at bay across the eastern half of Mid-Missouri. Showers continue into Sunday, lowering us into the 60s for highs. Rain moves out Sunday evening, leaving us with a tranquil stretch into early next week. We'll gain another inch or so of rain from this system Saturday night into Sunday. Next week starts off dry in the 60s through Wednesday, with temperatures creeping back toward 70 by the end of the week along with rain chances.
