Thursday weather update

Round #1 of showers and thunderstorms will continue to move through Mid-Missouri this afternoon and early evening. Expect some heavy downpours of rain and lightning with these storms. The severe threat with storms this afternoon/evening is rather low.

Round #2 of thunderstorms will move in late this evening and overnight as a cold front pushes in to the area. There is a chance that some of these storms will become severe with damaging winds and some large hail being the main threat. These storms will last through most of Thursday night.

Friday, look for some lingering showers and rumbles of thunder, however, rain/storms will move out during the late morning hours. By the afternoon, a mix of clouds and sunshine will return to the area. Highs in the afternoon will top out in the middle and upper 70s.
