TODAY: Sunny skies and high pressure will allow summer-like temperatures to return to Mid-Missouri through the afternoon hours. Highs will top out near 80 degrees, with winds out of the south under 10 mph. Thankfully, the humidity will be on the low side making it feel very comfortable.
TONIGHT: It will be a calm night under mostly clear skies. Overnight lows will bottom out in the mid to upper 50s. Some patchy fog is possible, but most areas should remain clear. Winds will be light out of the east up to 3 mph.
EXTENDED: The warm and dry weather will continue through Monday, with a repeat of Sunday's forecast. By Monday evening, a low coming in from Colorado will bring us another round of showers. The greatest rainfall amounts look to be along and north of I-70, as another cold front tracks through the region. No severe weather is expected in Mid-Missouri at this time. Following the cold front, we'll see a brief shot of fall air as highs climb into the upper 60s both Tuesday and Wednesday. By Wednesday night, we'll see a return of southerly winds and temperatures will rapidly warm into the 70s and 80s throughout the rest of the week. The summer pattern looks to once again be challenged as we head into next weekend. Watch ABC17 News for the latest forecast and follow ABC17 Stormtrack on Twitter for updates.
