A wet and windy day on tap

Posted: Updated:

Showers and a few storms will track through today with rain likely tonight and ending tomorrow morning. A few showers are trying to get going now, but a larger area of rain is heading northward out of Missouri and will track through our area later.

Temperatures are in the low to mid 50s with a few 60s to the southwest as a warm front tracks northward. Easterly winds are already 10-20 mph with some higher gusts... and will stay breezy today and tomorrow. 

Rain will continue to track to the north and will have some thunder with it in areas, mainly along the warm front. As the system tracks to the northeast, rain will continue to wrap around the low and we will see showers into Saturday morning before drying out for the afternoon. Rainfall amounts will depend on any storms that track through, but most could see at least half an inch with heavier amounts under a storm. Temps won't change much today with those southeasterly winds and the rain and we drop only a few degrees for tonight with the rain continuing. 

Northwest winds will help to dry us out for tomorrow afternoon with highs in the mid 50s to mid 60s, although they may drop for part of the day.  Dry weather will take over for Sunday and Monday before the next system tracks in on Tuesday.
