A cold front was located in southern Iowa and southern Nebraska early this morning. That front is expected to slowly sag southward towards the northern Ozarks today and could trigger a few storms for our northern region. There is also a slight chance for rain out west. Storms that are able to develop could become severe as conditions will be favorable for such activity this afternoon. Hail and strong winds will be the main threat but an isolated tornado is also possible, espeically further north.

The front still looks to be around tomorrow, though it does appear that most locations will remain dry this weekend. Temperatures will be warm each afternoon this weekend as highs warm into the upper 80s. There could also be a bit of a heat index with humid conditions.

Summer-like warmth will continue as we start the workweek. Another cold front looks to approach northern Missouri on Wednesday which could create more storms in the Ozarks. There will be another cold front to watch on Friday and that one could move through the area. Temperatures will be cooler to end the week.
