A very nice day out today with the forecast area climbed into the low 80s today with plenty of sunshine to enjoy and light winds out of the west. Tonight we drop down into the middle 60s tonight with clear skies persisting. Thursday brings a sunny day with low to mid 80s for a high with a mix of xun and clouds but increasing cloudiness on through Thursday night and into Friday. The next chance of rain around Mizzou looks to be on the day of Friday as well during the day Saturday.

Technical Discussion (The nerdy stuff we are discussing in class!)
The forecast area has been under the influence of high pressure and will continue into Thursday. Southerly winds return to the area introducing WAA and noticeable humidity values on the day Thursday as the high pressure system that was over the area Wednesday moves off to the Southeast, bringing slightly warmer temperatures back into the area being in the low to mid 80s. Friday and Saturday are the days in question, depending on where a stationary front sets up will determine ho much rain the area sees as well as an impact of temperatures as well.
A minor shortwave is expected to move in through the area Friday morning and with the unstable atmosphere, morning organized convection is possible. A stationary front will eventually set up around the northern edge of Boone County, bringing steady rain with it. GFS runs from the previous day had set the stationary front farther north, so its position may need to be adjusted for tomorrows forecast. This stationary front will have fairly constant rainfall associated with it, and will head south of us Saturday night. An inch of rain is expected from Friday through Saturday afternoon. When the stationary front finally exits the area, high pressure will begin to settle in for the rest of Labor Day Weekend.
