Tracking increasing temperatures and isolated storms this weekend

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy with isolated storms diminishing with sunset. Patchy fog developing overnight. Lows in the low 60s.

TOMORROW: Mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the low to mid-80s. A few storms possible across northern portions of the area by evening.

EXTENDED: We'll see isolated showers and a few storms possible through sunset, with any rain diminishing as we lose daytime heating. Tomorrow is looking great with some fog to start off through mid-morning, and afternoon sunshine. A front to our north may trigger isolated to scattered storms by 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. across northern Missouri. If these do form, there's a possibility a few may become strong and grow upscale into a complex of storms overnight into Sunday, bringing the threat of large hail and damaging winds. The threat is conditional at this point, so we're going to keep an eye on how Saturday night plays out. A Weather Alert Day may be needed for Sunday morning storms if the potential for widespread severe weather becomes evident. If storms don't develop, Sunday is looking hot and quite humid with highs in the lower 90s and a heat index in the upper 90s. Dew points will sit in the mid-70s during the day on Monday and Tuesday, sending our heat index values in the 103-105 range. A front will work through the area on Wednesday into Thursday, cooling us ever so slightly into the upper 80s to around 90 and bringing a chance of showers/storms Wednesday night into Thursday. We'll warm back into the 90s by Friday as high pressure keeps us in its grip into next weekend.
