Tracking a warmer Wednesday; weekend rain chances

TONIGHT: Mostly clear and comfortable with lows in the low 60s.

TOMORROW: Mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the low 90s. South breeze up to 15 mph.

EXTENDED: We drop back into the low 60s overnight, but southwest winds will help send temperatures back into the low 90s Wednesday and low to mid-90s Thursday as upper high pressure begins to build. An upper level wind shift will bring more moisture back into the region by Friday, bringing back humid air that hangs out through the weekend into next week. Heat index values will be in the upper 90s to around 100 on Friday. A slow moving cold front is expected to stall out across Mid-Missouri Friday night into Saturday, bringing on and off rain and storms. It appears there will still be plenty of dry time between rounds, however. The risk for severe weather appears somewhat low at this time, but any more heightened chance would be on Saturday night. Highs over the weekend top out in the upper 80s with a heat index in the low 90s. Monday may feature a few storms during the day, but highs reach the 90s and the evening is looking mostly dry. We'll keep an eye on the fireworks forecast as we are still several days out for timing of rain to shift a bit.
