Today: Temperatures warm into the mid-'60s for Thursday's high as winds remain out of the southwest at 8-12 mph. Scattered showers and storms will become more widespread late this afternoon with some lightning possible.

Tonight: Showers and storms continue to track across Mid-Missouri along a stalling warm-front leading to temperatures parking into the mid-'50s once again.

Extended: An increased risk of severe storms begins to push out ahead of an incoming cold-front Friday night into early Saturday morning. Western counties in Central Missouri are currently a level two out of five level as storms begin to weaken into early Saturday morning. These storms will be strongest from midnight through three in the morning. Could see the possibility of hail and strong winds at times during this time. By Saturday afternoon these showers and storms push to the east allowing for dry-time Saturday afternoon and Sunday before more chances of rain return next week.
