High pressure moving into the area is responsible for this beautiful
spring day. It`ll stick around for much of tomorrow as well,
bringing us another nice day.

Rain chances return tomorrow evening though after sunset as an upper
level shortwave trough and surface low move through from the
northwest. The rain showers should be scattered, with those south
and west of a line from Bethany to Brookfield to Moberly having the
best chance to see rain. The cold frontal passage associated with
this system will cool temperatures for Wednesday, but we should
still reach the low 60s. This system will exit the area overnight
Wednesday into Thursday.

Another shortwave trough and surface low will move through starting
Thursday afternoon, but before it does, the return to southerly flow
will help us get warmer than Wednesday (upper 60s). Scattered to
widespread rain is expected with some embedded thunderstorms
possible Thursday afternoon through the early overnight hours. Any
storms that develop shouldn`t be severe with CAPE values only
approaching 1000 J/kg and 0-6 km shear maxing out around 35 kts.
This system should exit the area early Friday morning.

The good news for this weekend continues, as high pressure looks to
move overhead for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Skies should be
mostly clear and highs will start off in the mid 60s Friday and
warm into the mid 70s by Sunday.
