A Weather Alert Day is in effect from late tonight through early Saturday morning for possible severe weather.
TONIGHT: Showers and thunderstorms move in late, bringing the possibility of damaging hail larger than 1". Temperatures fall into the low 50s.
FRIDAY: Showers and storms exit early, giving us a break for awhile. The front is still stalled over Mid-Missouri, allowing more storms to develop by late afternoon into the evening. Some of these storms could be strong to severe with damaging winds and hail into the overnight hours. Highs on Friday will be in the 70s.
EXTENDED: The cold front could trigger a few lingering showers and storms east of Highway 63 early on Saturday morning, but the best chance for severe weather looks to stay to our east across the St. Louis region back into Illinois. Saturday and Sunday are windy as the front finally passes to our east, and we drop from the low 70s on Saturday to the low 60s on Sunday. Next week starts off dry with highs in the low to mid-60s, and rain returns by Tuesday. Next week looks a little less active with few rain chances the rest of the week.
