Afternoon temperatures ranged from 61-degrees in Farmington to the state high of 71-degrees in St. Joseph.
Around west central Missouri, temperatures in Butler started out at 48-degrees and topped out at 69-derees.
I’m keeping a watch over the system in the desert southwest. A upper level disturbance will be over central Colorado and into northern New Mexico during the day on Sunday.
That disturbance will increase rain chances over western and central Kansas in the afternoon and early evening hours on Sunday. That disturbance will continue to move in our direction and will be moving into west central Missouri after midnight on Monday.
There is plenty of mid-level moisture to work with, but the lower levels of the atmosphere are dry and must hydrate for us to see any rainfall here.
The rain chances will pick up after 6 a.m. on Monday, but they will be relatively slight until the afternoon hours. I’m looking at a 20 percent chance in the morning and it will increase to a 50 percent chance during the afternoon hours.
Rainfall totals won’t be too impressive, as models are showing up to a half inch of rainfall across the region. Some isolated areas could see more, but under a half inch is expected.
Not much thunder associated with this passage. If there are any rumbles, they will be very isolated and non-severe in nature.
Look for this to linger thought the overnight hours on Monday. We could see an isolated lingering sprinkle or to on Tuesday morning, but they should be out of here by the noon hour.
Once this system moves through, high pressure will filter in behind, and keep our temperatures closer to normal. We will see temperatures in the low to mid-60s on Wednesday and through the end of the week.
Here’s your Quickcast:
Tonight: Clouds build overnight, lows in the upper 40s.
Monday: A chance for showers move in after 6 a.m. 50 percent chance for showers after noon, highs in the mid-60s.
Monday night: Shower chances continue, lows near 50 degrees.
Tuesday: Some isolated sprinkles early. Decreasing clouds in the afternoon, highs in the mid-60s.
