TODAY: Your morning commute will be wet, as storms are expected to stick around through 9AM-10AM taper off closer to HWY 50 and I-44. By the 6-8 AM hour, the main line of storms will be along the I-70 corridor and tracking southward. As the storms clear out of the area (late afternoon), cooler and drier air is expected to filter into Mid-Missouri. Much of the area will be dry in the afternoon and evening, while closer to the eastern Ozarks and I-44 storms could redevelop between 3PM and 7PM.
TONIGHT: As dry and cooler air continues to filter in, we'll see a clear sky tonight with temperatures falling to the upper 60s. We'll keep an eye on patchy fog in the early morning on Tuesday.
EXTENDED: Tuesday and the rest of your work week look similar to Monday with cooler conditions, a chance of showers, and periods of sunshine. As the upper level ridge responsible for the extreme heat continues to break down, several rounds of disturbances will track through the area. This will allow for daily rainfall chances that stick around the weekend. Much of the day looks dry Tuesday, while in the afternoon and south again towards I-44 is where the thunderstorm chance looks to be limited. We'll have an increase in chance for storms Wednesday through Friday bringing an additional 0.50" to 1" of rainfall by the end of the week. As we head into the weekend, cooler conditions will persist, as highs will be in the mid 80s. For additional weather updates follow @ABC17Stormtrack on Twitter.
