SEVERE WEATHER POSSIBLE
We have a slight chance for severe weather this evening into the overnight hours. Our Storm Mode Index is a 2 out of 5 and you will want to be updated for the latest trends on thunderstorms activity. The main storm hazards will be damaging winds and heavy rainfall, particularly along highway 36. Large hail may accompany these storms too, especially earlier in the night.
Last night, northern Missouri received around 1.00" to 4.50" of rainfall and caused flooding along areas nearby HWY 36.
Any additional rainfall overnight could cause some problems in these areas. Flooding is not expected to be a significant problem for most of mid Missouri.
A few lingering showers and thunderstorms are possible in the morning with temperatures in the middle 70s. We will dry out through the day with highs warming to the middle to upper 80s for much of the region. Areas south of Highway 50 could make it to the lower 90s.
Cooler conditions will stick around into the weekend with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s along with lower humidity, but temperatures will increase again as we head into early next week. A quick moving cold front is expected to bring temperatures back to a more normal level for much of the week.
