ECLIPSE 2017: Monday Morning Forecast (08/21/17)
ECLIPSE DAY 2017: As of now, eclipse viewing looks partly cloudy, but those clouds should be mostly in the mid/high levels of the atmosphere (not limiting solar viewing all that much). A few showers are possible Monday during the late morning from a line of storms that move into northern Missouri from Iowa. It looks like most showers (if any) should end by the late morning and will primarily stay north of I-70. Please remember to take extra caution and give yourself plenty of time to travel today, as roadways are expected to see increased traffic.
EXTENDED FORECAST: There is a Flash Flood Watch for Chariton, Saline, and Pettis Counties which starts Monday evening and continues until Tuesday morning. This is associated with a cold front that will move through the region late Monday night and early Tuesday morning. Rain accumulations could reach up to 2-3 inches for this event, with the northwestern/western portion of mid-Missouri receiving the most rain. After the front passes through, we will see high temperatures in the lower 80s and significantly lower humidity for the rest of the week.
