Heat building through Wednesday

TODAY:  Tuesday morning will start off cool as temperatures will be dropping into the 60s. As we head into the afternoon, we will see the return of the heat. High temperatures will rise into the lower 90s with heat indices reaching into the upper 90s. There will be a slight breeze out of the southeast under mostly sunny skies. 

TONIGHT:  Tonight will be mild and muggy as overnight lows will only drop into the lower 70s. Skies will remain mostly clear with winds out of the north up to 6 mph. 

EXTENDED:  Wednesday looks to be the hottest day of the week as temperatures will climb into the mid 90s with humidity also on the rise. The heat index will range from 100-105 in the afternoon with winds from the south at 4-8 mph. As we head into Wednesday evening, an approaching cold front will bring a chance of storms. Storms will develop in northern Missouri by early evening, tracking southeast into Mid-Missouri as early as 9 PM near HWY 36. These will push to the southeast overnight through early morning Thursday, weakening as they do so. The bulk of the storms look to push to the south after midnight. There is a marginal severe threat for areas along and south of I-70 with a slight severe threat along and north of I-70 Wednesday night. Damaging wind and large hail are the primary threats. Due to the slow movement of the cold front, additional storms are possible Thursday afternoon. Rainfall amounts from Wednesday night through Thursday of a half inch to an inch are possible north of I-70 with lower amounts south through Thursday. High temperatures will cool back into the mid to upper 80s Thursday through the weekend with nights in the 60s. Dry weather is expected from Friday through the weekend.
