(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Due to expected rain this weekend, Missouri Western State University has announced that the spring commencement ceremonies will be held in the Civic Arena this Saturday.

Missouri's commissioner of higher education Zora Mulligan will speak at the two Spring Commencement ceremonies at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, May 8 in the St. Joseph Civic Arena. 

The ceremonies were moved indoors because of predicted inclement weather both Saturday and Sunday.

Approximately 550 Fall 2020 and Spring and Summer 2021 graduates are expected to participate in the two ceremonies. 

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, attendance is limited to invited guests only (up to 6 per graduate). 

Face coverings are required. 

Both ceremonies will be streamed online for those unable to attend in person.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler today thanks to a northwesterly wind and some cloud cover. Highs will still be above average today with temperatures in the mid 50s. A sprinkle or two can not be ruled out today, however most areas will remain dry. Well above average temperatures will return through the end of the work week with highs in the 60s and 70s. Dry and sunny conditions look to continue through the work week into the weekend. Slightly cooler temperatures will move into the area this weekend with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
