Mostly cloudy and windy with warm temperatures.  First step out the door it's in the middle 60s.  While we will have some breaks of sun, showers will be developing later this morning.  Any cloud cover and shower activity will play with our temperatures and keep us near 70 this afternoon.  Early this afternoon, around the lunch hour, I'm expecting a line of stronger storms to develop along and east of the state line.  Can't rule out some of these being marginally severe with gusty winds and hail.  These will track into central Missouri as the afternoon continues and produce heavy rain.  Then, my attention shifts to eastern Kansas.  Spotty storms will develop here around 4 PM and move into the metro during the evening commute.  These could produce hail and gusty winds as well as they cluster together into the early evening.  Looks like the greatest tornado threat stays out of our region, to the south, as the parent storm system is now tracking farther south.

Showers will linger into part of Saturday.  It won't be a washout.  Drier conditions are expected by afternoon as clouds hold.  Temps will be cooler in the upper 50s.  Sunday looks mostly quiet until after sunset.  That's when another system provides us with rain and thunder heading into the Monday AM commute.  Next week, Wednesday and Thursday look unsettled with showers and thunderstorms.  Temps next week stay mild in the 60s with lows in the 40s.
