SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE RECENTLY DEVELOPED OVER NORTHEAST
MISSOURI AND WEST CENTRAL ILLINOIS IN AN SMALL AREA OF LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE CONVERGENCE.  RECENT RUNS OF THE RAP SHOW THIS FORCING
ERODING AROUND 12Z.  ATMOSPHERE WILL BECOME UNSTABLE AGAIN THIS
AFTERNOON...HOWEVER THERE WILL BE LITTLE IN THE WAY OF FORCING FOR
IT TO ACT ON.  HAVE KEPT CHANCE POPS OVER NORTHEAST MISSOURI AND
WEST CENTRAL ILLINOIS...PARTICULARLY OVERNIGHT AS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH
WILL MOVE THROUGH THE UPPER MIDWEST WHICH WILL LIKELY PUSH A MCS
ALONG A FRONTAL BOUNDARY OVER IOWA INTO INTO THE NORTHERN CWA.

SHOULD BE ANOTHER WARM DAY ACROSS THE AREA WITH 850MB TEMPERATURES
BETWEEN 18-20C.  HIGH TEMPERATURES SHOULD CLIMB BACK INTO THE LOW-
MID 90S WITH MIXING UP TO 850MB.
