Thanks to for the icons! 

With the cold front that passed through the area, tonight looks to be breezy and partly cloudy with lows near 39-49.  High pressure builds out to our NW giving us a mostly sunny Thursday with highs in the mid to high 50s.  Clouds come back into the area Thursday night creating an overcast night with lows in the low 40s to upper 30s.  Friday, the rain chances return due to a upper level disturbance, with highs struggling as they will reaching 42-46 degree range.  Partly cloudy conditions for Saturday with temperatures reaching low to mid 50s.

Technical Discussion (The nerdy stuff we are discussing in class!)
As a cold front passed through mid-Missouri earlier today, it brought cold air advection responsible for our lower temperatures. There is a wind out of the west contributing to cooler and more seasonable temperatures. A low pressure system settles over the area and that will bring the lowest temperatures we have seen this season, around the low 40's. Overcast skies will start to break up and continue to break into tomorrow. Breezy conditions will be present through Thursday. A ridge of high pressure will situate itself north west of Missouri as we head into Friday and that will allow for sunshine in the morning, all the while maintaining temperatures cooler than average with a high in the mid-50's. This high pressure will allow for elevated convection to build up and start to move through on Friday afternoon. Due to increasing relative humidity and a shallow layer of saturation, there will be increasing chances for precipitation, in the form of scattered showers, as we go throughout the day on Friday and diminishing into the evening and overnight hours.
