Pop-up storms for another day; A drier weekend (6/1/23)
The weather has been uneventful recently, without too many changes with each passing day. Thursday saw temperatures in the upper-80s to low-90s, humid air, and pop-up storms. While a spotty shower or two can’t be completely ruled out overnight Thursday, we’re otherwise mostly clear and dry.
We’ll be starting off with mostly clear skies on Friday with more clouds developing by lunchtime. These clouds will grow into some pop-up thunderstorms on Friday afternoon yet again.
Highs will be around 10° above average on Friday, with a high near 92° in Cape Girardeau. 90s will be a good bet for most.
The Skeeter Meter sits in the medium zone on Friday, and that will last through the weekend. While it will be warm and humid, the potential for standing water is low as we likely won’t be seeing a lot of widespread rain. For that reason, we’re keeping things out of the high and “ugh” zones.
Rain chances fade away over the weekend, and highs will warm up even more. In fact, some could be flirting with record highs on a few days. As of now, the forecast looks mostly dry and warm into next week.
