The weak upper level wave that brought the overnight rain is
currently centered over far north central MO with an attendant cold
front draped southwest from there. The front will be the focus for
afternoon scattered thunderstorms. Modest instability exists but bulk
shear is weak thus the severe threat is low with strong winds and
locally heavy rains the main issues. What activity does develop
should clear the CWA later this evening. Skies will be slow to clear
but with light winds and a moist boundary layer, patchy to locally
dense fog is expected to develop after midnight tonight, mainly north
of I-70.

Tomorrow should see low chances for scattered showers across the
eastern CWA with much of the CWA remaining dry and mild. Late
tomorrow night into Monday a trough moves across the far northern
upper midwest which will help kick off scattered TSRA early Monday
morning then into the day and evening. Not expecting anything severe
with the activity. From then on the region will be under the
influence of a building ridge. The ridge will allow for the return of
hot and humid air with low chance pops (mainly nocturnal) through
next week.
