Tracking showers and a few storms overnight into Friday morning

TONIGHT: Increasing clouds with rain moving in late. Lows in the upper 50s to low 60s.

TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. Highs in the mid-upper 70s.

EXTENDED: It's been a gorgeous Thursday with lower humidity and plenty of sunshine, but clouds start to thicken tonight ahead of our next complex of storms that will develop near a warm from to our west across Nebraska. Those storms push northwest to southeast overnight, bringing rain to much of Mid-Missouri, especially along and south of I-70 through mid-late morning. Spotty showers and cloud cover are expected for Friday afternoon, with gradual clearing by evening. High pressure builds in on Saturday, keeping the area mainly sunny and comfortable with highs near 80. A front to our north across far southern Iowa will likely trigger showers and storms, sending a few clouds our way. Since we'll be south of the front, we can expect warmer and more humid air to spread in from the south. Highs on Sunday reach the upper 80s with heat indices in the lower 90s. The heat continues next week with little relief from rain. The jet stream lifts north with upper high pressure building in all week, bringing temperatures into the low to mid-90s. Heat indices will hover in the upper 90s to around 100, especially Monday and Tuesday.
