I hope your week has been good so far. Mine has been pretty good. I am digging the cooler less humid weather that has worked in. Wow, after just a crazy smoking hot few days, low humidity and temperatures feel great! It won’t last super long but we will get a few nice days. Also, we are starting to slowly dry out after some very wet months. We will be wanting rain here in a few weeks. We won’t be in a drought, but we are really going to dry up a bit over the next few months as the final months of this Heady Pattern wraps up. Remember, the new pattern will start the third week of September, sadly that isn’t far away if you put into factor how fast time flys by. So check out the humidity or the dewpoints. You can see that cold front racing across eastern Missouri.
At least the humidity will be low for a couple of days. Now on the backside of this storm system, we are going to get some random showers early this morning.
After the morning clouds, that afternoon looks great with partly sunny skies and highs into the mid 70s.
Back into the lower 80s by Thursday.
We will have a couple weak waves on Friday and Saturday. This will give us a slight chance for a scattered shower but the next few days look pretty nice.
As a ridge of high pressure rolls back in by the weekend, we will start really warming back up with 90s again next week.
Besides that, it is kind of weather boring! Which I know, most of you enjoy.
Long range forecast through July:
Next Wednesday-Saturday: Heating back up the rest of the week with scattered thunderstorms on Friday and Saturday.
