First Alert Forecast

Thunderstorms producing large hail and strong winds will coninue to push east through northern Mid-MO early this afternoon. Skies remain partly to mostly cloudy, otherwise. It will be a warm and humid day, with temperatures warming quickly into the middle and upper 80s by the afternoon.

By late afternoon, a passing warm front may kick up a few showers and thunderstorms that could continue into the evening. Storms become more likely overnight as leftover storms in Kansas move eastward. These storms could be strong, with damaging winds and large hail as our main severe weather threats. Frequent lightning will also be associated with these storms.

Thunderstorms are likely to continue throughout all of Friday and rainfall could be heavy at times. Severe weather threats remain limited at this time. Although, frequent lightning and small hail is possible in a few isolated storms. High temperatures warm into the middle and upper 70s with gust out from the south up to 20 mph.

Finally by the weekend, sunshine returns and the warm temperatures remain under slightly humid conditions. Temperatures will warm into the lower and middle 80s. Chances for storms are still possible on Saturday, otherwise remaining isolated towards southern Missouri for Sunday and Monday.
