First Alert Forecast
***A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect from Friday night through Sunday Night***
We will have to dodge a few scattered showers this morning as a warm front moves through the state. Temps out the door will hold in the lower 50s.
Most of the rain will begin to clear around midday, leaving this afternoon mostly cloudy and mainly dry. Temps will be slightly warmer today as a gusty southeast breeze helps temps in the upper 60s.
While this evening remains mostly cloudy, skies should remain dry until after midnight when showers and heavy thunderstorms work in from southern Missouri. Rain may be heavy overnight and isolated storms may contain small hail or a brief gusty wind near the Lake Area.
The pattern for the weekend will be multiple waves of heavy rain throughout the state on Saturday and Sunday, especially southeast of Columbia and Jefferson City. Central Missouri could still receive anywhere from 2” to 5” of rainfall this weekend while areas along I-44 near Rolla could receive locally higher amounts. Since the ground is saturated from recent rains this week, areal and flash flooding will be our main concern this weekend and likely into Monday. temps this weekend will be in the low 60s Saturday, rising into the upper 60s sunday.
As rain clears out late Sunday, clouds will likely stick around even into Monday with a few spotty showers lingering around. Cooler air will begin to wrap into the system and spreads over Missouri on Monday. Temps early next week will be in the 50s, rising into the 60s by Tuesday.
