Showers and storms that formed in northwest Missouri will continue to push east across the Missouri and Iowa state line. As we head through sunset, storms will wind down for a mild end to Tuesday. Another round of rain and thunderstorms could develop overnight into early Wednesday, which could impact the morning drive. Severe weather is not expected, but any thunderstorms that form will produce heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning. Rain will slowly taper off into the afternoon, as temperatures return to the 80s. Some spots may not get higher than 82 or 83 degrees, depending on how long the rain lingers. Other spots will soar into the middle to upper 80s. Active weather continues as we head through the second half of the week, with isolated to scattered rain chances through Saturday. By early next week, highs will be in the middle 80s. We could see some relief from this heat as a trough digs into the eastern half of the United States. Temperatures are favored to be near or slightly below average by the following weekend.
