Big changes coming to Mid-MO weather

The nice and calm weather we have experienced the last two days is about to come to an end. A break down of the weather the next few days can be seen below which includes severe weather chances and summer-time heat:

Saturday evening: A warm front will move through the area this evening and will open the doors to much warmer and more moist air.
Saturday night: We will be mostly clear and mild. As we move toward Sunday morning, we will watch for a complex of strong thunderstorms to move out of Nebraska and Kansas into Missouri, but those storms won't reach Mid-MO until day break.
Sunday morning: For the most part, these storms will fall apart as they get to Mid-MO during the morning hours, but expect a few spotty storms around the area through 10 AM. After these spot storms move out, we should see a bit of clearing for the late morning and early afternoon.

Sunday afternoon/evening: After a few hours of mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the middle 80s, a cold front will approach the area from the northwest. This will likely spark off showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours.

Some of these storms have the possibility to be on the strong to severe side. The main severe weather threats will be large hail and damaging winds. The tornado threat looks rather low, though there is a small chance one could occur if a stronger supercell thunderstorm develops.

Monday: The cold front from Sunday will turn north as a warm front during the day. This will bring in very warm air to Mid-MO. A few thunderstorms are possible as this warm front lifts north across the area. Highs on Tuesday will be close to 90 degrees with a real kick up in humidity.

Summer takes control of our weather at least through the end of the week with temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s with a few chances of thunderstorms late next week.
