Clouds will be on the decrease with quite a bit more sunshine this afternoon. We’ll make an easy run for the lower 70s by 4 PM. Winds won’t be too terribly strong from the southeast at 5 to 15 MPH, making it a beauty of a day!
The zone to watch for thunderstorm development on Tuesday will be northern Missouri, basically the closer you can get to the MO/IA state line. The timeline will be closer to sunset. Very isolated development is expected. There is a Marginal Risk for this area late Tuesday which means a storm could briefly have some hail and/or strong wind gusts. Right now, the severe threat looks rather low and not widespread.
The rest of our area will be partly to mostly cloudy and warm at 78.
For Wednesday, showers & thunderstorms are likely for the AM commute and will taper by lunch. Highs will be even warmer in the lower 80s. There is a chance for additional thunderstorms, some of which could be strong, toward evening. A Slight Risk has been posted for northern Missouri and Kansas.
Thunderstorm development will greatly depend on exactly where that warm front will reside during the day.
Thursday will be a quiet and cooler day in the middle 60s. Most of Friday will be dry before rain & thunder arrive by evening and linger through much of Saturday.
Saturday looks like a potential washout before the rain tapers early Sunday. Highs over the weekend will be in the 50s Saturday and warming to the middle 60s by Sunday. Sunny next Monday and mild near 70.
