At early morning a few high clouds were streaming eastward across
the region. Temperatures ranged from the low to mid 40s and winds
were generally out of the south around 10 mph with an occasional
gust to 15 mph.
Southerly flow will continue to produce above normal temperatures
area wide through Saturday. High temperatures Friday and Saturday are
expected to top out in the upper 40s to middle 60s over the region.
As a slow moving cold front approaches the region from the northwest
tonight, precipitation will begin to overspread the western sections
of the region. As this boundary becomes stationary over the area
combined with a series of upper level disturbances, precipitation
will quickly expand across the remainder of the area on Friday.
Thunderstorms will be possible from Friday through Saturday evening,
with heavy rainfall possible Saturday and Saturday night. A few
thunderstorms could become severe Saturday night over portions of
southeast Missouri and far southwest Kentucky. Rainfall totals by
Sunday morning should be in the 3 to 4 inch range.
In the wake of this system, high pressure should keep the region
dry and cooler with temperatures moderating back into the 40s by
