Taking a quick look at central Missouri and the home of hte University of Missouri with our forecast today.
At 154pm, CT, Columbia was reporting a temperature of 73 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. An upper level trouggh is departing, which means that a return to more seasonable warmth is on its way, beginning as soon as they can see some clearing skies.
As high pressure builds over the Great Lakes, the Gulf will open up on the western flank, with warm, humid air being drawn through Missouri. Lee troughing over the southern Rockies will be able to develop and begin approaching the Ozarks by tomorrow evening. Some guidance suggests available vorticity that really doesn’t make much sense given the upper level dynamics. Guidance that doe make sense insists a lee trough attempting to advance into the southern Plains will be squashed south towards the Gulf of Mexico, while Colummbia will see mostly clouy skies, but will otherwise stay dry, if a bit on the muggy side.

A few outlets are buying into the shower and storm threat tomorrow evening, but I think if there is anything, it would be on Friday morning. More likely, there won’t be a drop. Satellite showws some good old fashioned cumulus clouds.
