Rainfall amounts by tomorrow morning could reach near 1" in Columbia and 1.5" to 2" near Moberly and Macon.
EXTENDED: With strong storms likely early on Wednesday morning, this looks to end through 9AM-11AM. The atmosphere will struggle to rebound during the day on Wednesday, therefore strong storms are not likely during the daytime Wednesday afternoon or evening. Thursday morning could bring a few spotty storms before 9AM. There will be plenty of heating during the day on Thursday for strong isolated storms in the afternoon. It looks like east of US 63 may have ingredients more favorable through the evening before storms increase again overnight and into Friday morning. Days will be warm and humid this week and into the weekend as temperatures climb into the 80s with a chance of storms each day. Low level winds will bring a continuous stream of moisture in from the Gulf of Mexico through the week. This in part with upper level disturbances, will spin off several waves of energy that could potentially bring severe weather. Potential rain this week ranges from 1" to 3" where highest totals are expected north of I-70. For additional weather updates follow @ABC17stormtrack on Twitter.
