Tracking scattered storms tonight, cool weekend ahead

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. Some storms may produce heavy rain and isolated hail. Lows in the low to mid-50s.

TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. Cooler with highs in the lower 60s. Temperatures fall into the low 50s by early evening.

EXTENDED: Showers and storms will continue to develop along the front into this evening, producing scattered heavy rainfall and the potential for isolated large hail. Rain and storms continue into the overnight hours as the front slowly starts to work its way south. By Saturday afternoon, areas north of the front will remain in the low to mid-60s. Points south could reach the mid-upper 70s, especially south of the Lake of the Ozarks. Scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder will be possible, but the severe threat looks to be across southern Missouri by afternoon. That said, a few storms south of Highway 50 could see some isolated hail. These locations are also in a level 1 out of 5 severe risk. Rain finally clears the area Saturday night, with a gorgeous Sunday ahead. It's a cold start to the day with morning lows in the low to mid-40s. Highs reach the mid-60s with plenty of sunshine, which puts us about 10 degrees cooler than average. Next week will remain cooler than normal until the end of the week with a wet pattern setting up. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be gloomy with widespread rain both days, and highs only reaching the upper 60s. Rain amounts between this weekend and next week could add up to 2-3", so we'll have to watch for some localized flooding. There's little to no signal for severe weather any day next week. Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day weekend looks dry at this point, there could be a round of rain or storms around Sunday. Temperatures look to be in the mid-upper 70s next weekend.
