TODAY: A cold front is sliding south today, which will bring decreasing clouds across Mid Missouri. A north/northwest wind will usher in cooler and drier air, so it will feel more comfortable this afternoon with highs in the mid 80s, and for our Thursday with temperatures in the low 80s.
TONIGHT: Skies will remain clear, which will allow the surface to cool slightly with lows dipping into the low 60s overnight.
EXTENDED: High pressure returns today and into Friday morning, before next warm front lifts in Mid Missouri, which could bring a few rain showers and storms early in the day.
