Tracking a few pop up storms tonight, heat ramps up for the weekend

TONIGHT: Isolated storms diminishing, mostly clear with lows in the lower 70s.

TOMORROW: Mostly sunny and hot with highs in the low 90s. Heat index around 95.

EXTENDED: Isolated storms will stay pretty sparse into this evening, bringing brief downpours and frequent lightning. Tomorrow is bright with highs in the low 90s, but the heat ramps up again by Friday with the heat index getting close to 100. Saturday will bring highs in the mid-upper 90s and a heat index near 100, and a cold front that moves in from the north could bring a few storms just before midnight. A couple of these could be strong up across northern Missouri, but the overall risk for Mid-Missouri is looking low. Showers and storms diminish around or shortly after sunrise Sunday, leaving us hot for the rest of the weekend with highs in the mid-90s. Next week looks even hotter to start off as another upper ridge of high pressure builds in from the west, keeping highs around 94-96. We'll have a few chances for storms, but organized systems look hard to come by with a similar pattern through the end of June.
