Tracking clearing skies tonight, warmer Wednesday
TONIGHT: Mostly clear and cold with lows in the upper 20s to lower 30s.
TOMORROW: Partly sunny and warmer with highs in the upper 50s.
EXTENDED: Clouds gradually clear out as rain has exited to our east today, with high pressure building in overnight into Wednesday. As that slides south, winds will shift back to the south tonight, warming temperatures into the upper 50s to around 60 on Wednesday. A meandering front will lift back north tomorrow into Thursday, bringing strong winds and temperatures in the upper 60s to around 70 on Thursday afternoon. An approaching cold front will bring the chance for a few showers or storms overnight Thursday into Friday that could throw a wrench into Friday's forecast. If clouds and morning rain linger long enough, we may not destabilize enough ahead of the cold front to get much severe weather in Mid-Missouri. If we can clear out early, there could be a window from early afternoon through early evening for potential severe storms with strong winds, hail, and the threat of a tornado. Either way, the front moves east of us Friday night, leaving chillier temperatures on Saturday in the lower 50s with more sunshine. We bounce back to near 70 on Sunday to end the weekend on a nice note.
