From Winter to Spring in a Matter of Days

Everyone is in need of some warmer weather. The good news... It is almost here. We will be back in to the middle to upper 50's this weekend. (Actually, highs should reach the upper 40's to lower 50's Friday.)

Along with the warmer temperatures, moisture will begin streaming north on strong southerly/southwesterly winds. Enough that you will notice the humidity climbing.

With the warm temperatures and moisture in place, we will be seeing a storm system that is moving in to California. This storm will move across the southwestern US and eventually shoot some chunks of energy our way. This means that we will have a chance of severe weather Monday and again overnight Tuesday/Wednesday.

Note that the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has already highlighted parts of Missouri in their Day 6 outlook.
This is still several days away and things will change a little bit, but this is how it is looking now. Stay tuned...
