TODAY : Clouds are being stubborn this afternoon and will hinder many locations from climbing into the 80s. The rain that tracked through the area earlier this morning, cooled off temperatures and is keeping those temps on the "cooler" side. Outside of some moderate drizzle and light rain most of the afternoon will stay on the dry side, with storms increasing through the evening. Highs today will struggle to climb into the upper 70s, with winds out of the east under 7 mph.
TONIGHT: Storms tracking out of Kansas and Nebraska will be moving into Missouri by the late afternoon hours. These storms look to arrive in Mid-Missouri by the 7PM time frame, bringing the potential for strong to severe storms. The isolated t-storm chance looks to end through 11PM leaving a cloudy night ahead. Areas east of US 63 will have a chance to see a few storms overnight, while severe weather is not expected. Temperatures will stay a tad milder in the low 70s with winds coming from the southeast at 5-8mph
EXTENDED: A warm front will move north through the day Saturday keeping our rain chances going with scattered t-storms and high temperatures in the mid 80s. The storm chance continues Sunday with high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Unsettled weather continues into early next week with a chance of storms each day and high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. For additional weather updates follow @ABC17Stormtrack on Twitter.
