ABC 17 Stormtrack Forecast

TODAY: The cool temperatures this morning are a welcoming sight, after seeing several nights in the 70s.  Thanks to northwesterly flow we'll continue to see the cooler and drier air filter into Mid-Missouri.  Highs today will once again only top out in the mid 80s, with very low humidity expected.  Everyone will stay dry today, with the exception of a rouge storm possible towards the I-44 corridor.  Winds through the day will be out of the NW under 10 mph.

TONIGHT: Another dry and pleasant evening is expected for Mid-Missouri.  Winds will shift out of the NE through the night under 5 mph.  This will keep the humidity at bay, with temperatures once again falling into the mid and upper 60s.

EXTENDED:   A few showers are possible west of HWY 63 Sunday morning with spotty showers & t-storms possible in the afternoon. The best chance of afternoon t-storms is south of I-70. High temperatures will stay in the mid to upper 80s Sunday. As a warm front moves across the area Sunday night, a cluster of storms with heavy rain is possible along and east of HWY 63 by early Monday morning as they track to the southeast along this front. Hot, humid air moves in starting Monday and sticking around through the work week with high temperatures in the low to mid 90s and heat indices reaching 100-106.  For additional weather updates follow @ABC17Stormtrack on Twitter.
