After the last few days of cooler than average temperatures for mid October, conditions should return to average, with temperatures warming back up for the forecast period. Clouds should move out by Saturday morning allowing for a pleasant Saturday afternoon football game. Clouds may return briefly overnight Saturday, but should come and go by Sunday morning. Pleasant, albeit, breezy conditions should persist for the remainder of the period.

Technical Discussion (The nerdy stuff we are discussing in class!)
After a soggy start to our Friday, the weekend should see a slow drying out.  GFS and NAM solutions agree fairly well on the progress of our skies through the weekend.  Clouds will take their time clearing out this evening, and we should have a healthy look at the sun on Saturday.  However, Saturday highs should allow for enough mixing to form some Cu or even a StratoCu layer in the afternoon, which should keep our temperatures from getting out of the low to mid 60s.  Late on Saturday night and into Sunday, a weak kata-type cold front is set to push through mid-Missouri, with a few clouds ahead and increasing winds with the FROPA. A surface anticyclone will assert itself into the Columbia by Sunday and continue into Monday.
