CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) -Good Monday Evening Heartland. A Prefrontal Trough is moving into the area this evening and this will focus shower and thunderstorms development early. Thunderstorms that develop will have the potential to produce very heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent cloud to ground lightning. Temperatures are warm and muggy outside the storms. Readings will slowly fall to the upper 70s around midnight.
A few hours after sunset most of the activity will decrease with only isolated storms possible. Tomorrow a front will sag across our central counties. Scattered storms will develop along and south of this front with our northern counties remaining mainly dry.
Lows tonight will be in the upper 60s north to the middle 70s south. Highs tomorrow will be in the middle to upper 80s.
We will see a good chance of storms through the weekend. Rainfall amounts could range between 3 and 5 inches between now and Sunday evening.
