THIS AFTERNOON: Mostly cloudy skies will continue to hold strong this afternoon slowing anymore significant warming. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 80s , warmer off to the southeast. Rain should stay out until later this evening.
TONIGHT: Rain chances will gradually build in from the northwest throughout the later evening hours. Starting off in our northwestern counties between 6-8pm , arriving to central mid-MO by 10 or 11pm . Some storms, especially as they first enter the viewing area could be strong/severe with gusty winds, but these storms will start to weaken as they approach HWY 63.
EXTENDED: The cold front responsible for these storms will be slowly exiting the area on Thursday and will try to take the cloud cover with it as highs will struggle to get back to 70. That seasonal weather looks to stick around for the foreseeable future, with another chance of rain moving in toward Saturday.
