TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with lows in the lower 60s. Isolated to scattered storms possible near Highway 65 and the Lake of the Ozarks after midnight.
TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy and mild with highs in the upper 70s. A few isolated to scattered storms are possible through afternoon.
EXTENDED: A disturbance to our west will trigger a round of storms to our west across the Plains, and we'll see increasing cloud cover due to this tonight into Friday. Isolated to scattered showers and storms will be possible for areas along Highway 65 and near the Lake of the Ozarks, but most of us remain cloudy into Friday. As this weak boundary lifts north, we could see a storm or two during the day on Friday, but widespread rain isn't expected. Saturday is looking mostly dry, but a stronger low level jet stream will pull in higher dew points and warmer temperatures during the day ahead of a cold front that will bring storms Saturday night into Sunday. Storms will move in from west to east, arriving after sunset for our western counties and slowly working through the region overnight. There is a limited risk for strong storms with a level 1 risk from the Storm Prediction Center, however, by the time storms enter Mid-Missouri we'll be losing available energy to keep storms as robust. Still, isolated strong wind gusts and rain amounts in the 1-2" range are likely through Sunday morning. Sunday is cooler behind the front with highs only reaching the upper 60s to around 70 with some lingering rain. Next week looks more fall like with morning temperatures in the mid-50s and highs in the lower 70s along with fairly dry weather for much of the week.
