A high pressure system will reside over the Mid-Missouri area resulting in calm weather and temperatures in the upper 50's. Expect to see generally dry condition with an increase of cloud coverage occuring on Wednesday night. Late Thursday evening through Friday some isloated showers could bring precipation into our local area.

Technical Discussion (The nerdy stuff we are discussing in class!)
The low pressure system north of the Great Lakes continues moving eastward, while confluent flow is noted across the Eastern United States.Drier northerly winds will turn southerly by Wednesday afternoon bringing more moisture to the area. The ridge at 700 mb is located north of the Ohio valley and is pulling some moisture northward from Southwest Texas. With yesterday's cold frontal passage, high pressure over the Upper Midwest will dominate our local weather. Expect calm weather with below average temperatures in the upper 50's. On Thursday a shortwave will begin to push in from the northwest. While this shortwave trough brings the potential of precipation, saturation will be difficult to achieve due to a dry layer near the surface. GFS/Euro supports a strong increase in cloud cover with little to no precipation occuring Thursday evening/Friday morning. Later shifts should track and monitor this chance of rain occuring.
