Pleasant temperatures continue for Friday. We are expecting lots of sunshine for the end of our work week. Temperatures will remain seasonal, but they will be slightly cooler on Saturday thanks to a weak cold front moving through. Ahead of this cold front that will move through around mid-morning to early afternoon on Saturday, the clouds will begin building. As the front passes through mid-Missouri, spotty showers are expected. After the front passes, clouds will linger Saturday night into Sunday. Late Sunday night we have a chance for storms as a strong cold front approaches.

Technical Discussion (The nerdy stuff we are discussing in class!)
On Friday, the high pressure system that brought sunshine and warmer temperatures will persist. However, this high pressure system will move out of the area as a upper level trough moves through the area beginning Friday night. This upper level trough is associated with a weak cold front that will bring increasing cloud cover and the possibility for spotty showers. By Saturday evening, this cold front will move out of the area however, cloud coverage will linger.
Sunday will remain mostly calm ahead of our next storm system that will move through Sunday night. A strong upper level jet will push into our area Sunday ahead of our next frontal system. With this system, there is a chance for showers and thunderstorms overnight Sunday in Monday morning.
