The first of several storm chances

As a summer-like pattern settles across Mid-Missouri, summer-like storm chances will exist for nearly the entire next week. Temperatures will be anywhere from 5-10 degrees above normal through the end of May. The warm, moist air we have in place will set the table for showers and storms as a cold front slowly attempts to move through the area. That front will stall and set off scattered storms during the peak heating hours of the day - mainly the late afternoon and early evening. Some storms may continue in the overnight hours.

There is a slight chance of a few storms becoming severe Wednesday afternoon and evening. While the chances are low, if anything can be strong or severe wind and hail will be the biggest threats. Storm coverage will be very hit or miss over the next several days. Many may stay rain free.
