Warm & breezy weather Wednesday gave way to evening clouds and a touch of light rain. The clouds and light rain will clear out quickly with another bright and mild day on tap for Thursday.

Thursday will start with wall-to-wall sunshine, but some fair weather cumulus clouds will build up by afternoon, especially closer to Lake of the Ozarks. Afternoon highs will be running a little cooler too versus Wednesday’s warmth.

Look for warmer temperatures to make a quick return Friday with widespread 70s. This will be the beginning on an extended stretch of days where highs more often than not will top 70. This weekend will feature bright and dry conditions with lows in the 40s and low 50s and afternoon highs in the low 70s.

A weak system moving through the region Monday might generate some light rain showers Sunday night into Monday. Temperatures will remain mild with highs well into the 70s. Tuesday looks even warmer with highs approaching 80. Another round of rain will enter the picture Wednesday into Wednesday night with temperatures remaining on the warmer side of the ledger.

Mild weather will hold through the remainder of the week with additional episodes of rain. There’s some potential for a bout of heavier rain totals heading into the weekend before Halloween. There’s no sign of freezing temperatures through next week. Colder weather may work back in just ahead of Halloween.
