Discussion: Trick or treaters might be advised to carry an umbrella with them if they are celebrating Halloween south of I-70. Chances of rain creep north heading towards evening hours in mid-Missouri. Periods of light rain will persist until early Thursday morning as the system makes its way eastward and out of the area. Highs stick in the upper 50's and we should stay dry for the remainder of the day and overnight on Thursday. Friday morning we see a chance of isolated showers due to a weak upper-level disturbance and limited available moisture. This fast moving system will pass rather quickly leaving us mostly cloudy for the rest of the day. Heading into the weekend we have more chances for rain that increase into Saturday night but first we will warm up to a high near 60.

Technical Discussion (The nerdy stuff we are discussing in class!)
 Chances of rain continue to show throughout the forecast period.  The cold front from yesterday is producing rain showers off to our south and east and chances of severe weather in eastern Texas and Louisana are aiding the transport of moisture up to Missouri bringing us a chance of light rain this evening.  With the potential of rain this evening into tomorrow morning, highs will struggle reaching only into the mid to upper 50s.  There will be little clearing occurring overnight Thursday on into Friday morning with lows reaching lower 40s.  Winds shift to a more southerly direction aiding in our chance for morning precipitation Friday and clouds persisting thoughout the day. Ahead of the cold front that will be moving through late Friday night early Saturday morning there is a slight increase in PWAT values. This slight increase in moisture will increase the chance of precipitation in the afternoon hours. Before the precipitation moves into the area on the back end of the cold front, there will be some sunshine in the morning hours.
