Starting off the fifth day of the 2019 Missouri State Fair with something other than fair weather. As you travel north of the Sedalia/Warrensburg area, your chances of the storms will increase.

Storms will move through northern Missouri this morning. But they will give way to hot and humid conditions along and south of Highway 36. Those hot and humid conditions will also lead to a new round of storms late this afternoon and into the overnight hours. A few storms in northern Missouri could be severe with damaging winds the main hazard.
