(ST. JOSEPH, MO.) Monday started off with scattered storms moving through St. Joseph in the early morning hours.

The storms popped up along a weak frontal boundary that is just to the northwest. The front will be stationary throughout the day which means more hot and humid weather this afternoon.

The storms wrapped up by 7am and the leftover cloud cover moved out as well. This will lead to mostly sunny skies this afternoon with highs in the low to mid 90s. It will feel like anywhere between 100-105 degrees as a heat advisory remains in effect until 8pm.

Winds will be out of the southwest at 5 to 10 miles per hour. Temperatures will drop down around 70 degrees overnight with a few clouds. There is a slight chance for a few showers or storms, but most areas should remain dry. Winds will be out of the southeast around 5 miles per hour.

Tuesday won't be as hot, but it will still be warm as temperatures will be in the low 90s with heat index values in the upper 90s. Mostly sunny skies are expected with winds out of the southeast at 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Chances for scattered showers and storms will increase heading into the evening and overnight hours.
