A little rain, a lot of wind

Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will move through Mid-Missouri early Thursday. Most will just see cloudy skies and temperatures in the 50s/60s. Another wave of rain will likely slide through during the late morning and early afternoon. A tight pressure gradient will bring strong winds to the area for the afternoon and evening hours. Gusts could be in excess of 50 mph. A wind advisory is in effect until 6 PM.

Unfortunately, temperatures will fall quickly during the second half of Thursday and we'll wake up in the 20s on Friday morning. The good news is our skies will be clear and we'll enjoy sunshine throughout the day and some temperature recovery for the first half of the weekend.
