Storms were a bit robust earlier this afternoon with several
reports of wind damage and localized heavy rainfall. These storms
will continue to move out of southern Missouri by early evening. A
cold front is moving through southern Missouri this afternoon with
much drier air starting to move in from the northwest and surface
high pressure building in. Dewpoints in the K.C. area are in the
lower to middle 50s and that drier air will be filtering in
tonight. Skies will generally clear from north to south later this
evening. Saturday will be a fantastic day across the region with
highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s and mostly sunny skies.

An upper level ridge over the southwestern U.S. and a trough over
the Great Lakes Region will put the Missouri Ozarks region in a
northwest flow this weekend. Another nice day will be around on
Sunday. Forecast models indicate a weak mid level disturbance
will move across the region in the late Sunday night into Monday
and possibly bring a few scattered showers and isolated storms to
the area. Additional cloud cover will keep temperatures cool on
Monday as well.

Upper level heights will rise early to middle of next week as well
as a return of southerly winds and humidity. Temperatures will be
on the increase by the middle of next week with more seasonable
temperatures for late June. Forecast models indicated a better
chance for scattered storms may return sometime middle or end of
next week with a storm system moving across the Upper Midwest.
