Weather Update: Cooler Temps and Chances for Rain

Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are tracking into northern MO and northeast KS this evening, and will slowly develop southward toward the Missouri River overnight. This will be welcome rain to many, but rainfall amounts should generally stay under a quarter of an inch.

If you don't get much rain from tonight's activity, do not worry, there looks to be a change to a wetter pattern on the horizon. This active pattern won't arrive until later next week though, so we have several more dry days in store before then.
