The rain moves in

A slow moving cold front will bring several rounds of rain to the area starting Thursday. Temperatures will fall through the day as rain starts out spotty during the morning hours. Showers will become scattered by the afternoon and more widespread at night. Overnight lows will fall into the 30s making rain mixed with flurries possible on Friday morning.

An area of low pressure will move into Mid-Missouri behind the front on Friday and bring continued spotty rain chances through the weekend. Temperatures will slowly moderate Saturday and Sunday in the 50s and 60s. The 70s and dry weather will return by next week.
