This is the last day of rather warm temperatures as a strong cold
front will move in tonight. Before that occurs there is a
diurnally driven low cloud deck covering the southern half of the
CWA. This may continue to expand northward due to southerly low-
level moisture advection associated with TD Cindy. The clouds have
helped temper the temperatures in these areas and the clouds
should mix out near sunset.

The front is progged to move quickly across the region later
tonight. Along the front scattered thunderstorms are expected to
develop. A few may be strong, but not expecting widespread
coverage. The better chances to receive rain will be across north
central/northeast MO. The activity should clear the CWA shortly
after sunrise. The most noticeable result will be a cooler and
less humid airmass. Very cool temperatures, by late June measures,
are in-store for the weekend and the start of next week with
highs in the 70s.

Looking past Monday, there are no clear signals for widespread precip
until mid/late week. Temps will slowly modify to near normal (mid-
80s).

MFVR SCT-BKN CIGS are developing across most of the terminals
associated with moisture advecting in on the southerly low level
flow. Per satellite imagery SJT may be just far enough north to
avoid the MVFR cloud deck so I didn`t introduce BKN030 there, but
will monitor and AMD if needed. These clouds should clear off
near sunset. The next item of interest is a strong cold front that
will move in tonight. VCTS are expected along the fast moving
front. Behind the front the sfc winds will quickly veer and be
out of the north-northeast. CIGS will slowly rise through the
daytime morning hours.
