It's going to be hot and humid today, with the hottest conditions toward central Missouri. If you've got outdoor plans this afternoon, make sure you wear lightweight clothes, drink plenty of water, and avoid strenuous activity.
Showers and thunderstorms will develop near a cold front this evening, possibly organizing into a line, and move southeastward. Some of these thunderstorms could become severe from 6 pm through midnight with damaging winds and large hail the primary hazards.
The cold front responsible for tonight's storm chances will bring relief to today's hot temperatures. With highs in the low to mid 80s, temperatures will actually be a bit below normal before we warm back up for the end of the week.
