Cold front that slid through the region this morning has pushed to
near the I-44 corridor where it will remain quasi-stationary
overnight. A broad upper wave tracking across the area late tonight
into Wednesday will interact with this boundary with several areas of
rain and thunderstorms developing mainly to the south of the forecast
area through the day. Some of this activity could make it as far
north as Sedalia and Boonville, but drier near-surface air will
prevent precipitation from spreading much further north than this.

The upper wave will pass through the area on Thursday bringing a
reinforcing shot of cooler air to the region. Highs Thursday will
only be in the upper 50s and lower 60s with lows dropping into the
upper 30s to near 40 Thursday night. Broad ridging building into the
area will bring a slow moderation in temperatures for the end of the
week with highs returning into the 70s over the weekend.

Quiet flying conditions next 24 hours with high pressure dominating
the region. Winds will decrease late this afternoon and become
northeasterly overnight. Any precipitation on Weds should remain
south of a KC to Kirksville line.
