Tracking warmth and overnight storm chances

TODAY: Wednesday is the warmest so far this week, with plenty more warmth ahead. Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies today, with clouds being thin enough for you to want sunglasses through the day. Temperatures will soar to near 70 today, despite this added cloud cover thanks to a warm front moving in this afternoon.

TONIGHT: An area of low pressure tied to the warm front will pull in warmth and some moisture. Enough to generate a chance for thunderstorms as the low passes through overnight and into Thursday. There will be a chance for thunderstorms mostly south of the warm front, which will place them south of I-70. There is an isolated chance for rain, and a rumble of thunder north of the front, but this is less likely. Many of us remain dry through this event. A chance for an isolated strong storm exists just south of mid-Missouri for now. Some storms near Springfield to West Plains could produce hail.

EXTENDED: This low pushes southeast through the day on Thursday leaving us drier and cooler. Expect partly cloudy skies and highs in the 60s on Thursday. Highs fall into the 50s on Friday with another weak cold front dropping into the region Friday. We'll be in the 50s Saturday, before we begin to warm into the 70s early next week. Sunday through Tuesday looks exceptionally warm, with near record warmth possible Monday and Tuesday as another round of storms builds into the region by Tuesday.
