TODAY: Friday starts sunny, with clear skies behind yesterday's cold front, which currently sits as a stationary boundary just south of mid-MO. Despite being on the "cool" side of the boundary, temperatures this morning are warm, in the low 70s, and will stay warm this afternoon, as they climb into the low 90s. Winds start out of the southeast this morning, but may turn more southerly through the day, suggesting that boundary may inch northward. Enough humidity is present south of the front to make this feel like 100. Mostly sunny skies are likely for most, but in the south of the boundary, near Linn, Rolla, Owensville, and Hermann, we'll have another chance for an isolated pop up thunderstorm. Otherwise, a mostly dry day in mid-MO.
TONIGHT: Skies remain mostly clear and winds relax back to a southeasterly position overnight. Temperatures fall into the low 70s again.
EXTENDED: A heat advisory is in effect for Saturday. With temperatures in the mid-90s, and dew points in the mid-60s during the heat of the day, heat index values will range anywhere from 100-103 for most. An isolated storm is possible Saturday afternoon, otherwise most stay dry under partly cloudy skies. Partly cloudy with highs in the mid-90s is expected again on Sunday, but this time humidity won't play as much of a role. Still, prepare for a hot weekend. By Monday a cold front arrives, bringing chances for rain areawide, and potentially keeping temperatures out of the 90s, even if just barely. This resets highs for the first half of next week, but it looks like we may climb back into the 90s by Thursday.
