Another streak of hot and mostly dry weather (7/17/22)
After a soggy Sunday, the weather turns much drier to kick off the workweek.
An isolated early morning shower is not completely out of the question on Monday. That said, any shower activity will be few and far between early Monday. The afternoon features dry and warm conditions, with highs in the upper-80s in Cape Girardeau.
Rain chances are fairly low through Wednesday, meaning the potential for standing water remains limited. However, it’ll still be hot and humid. As a result, the Skeeter Meter remains in the “High” territory Monday through Wednesday.
Temperatures continue to climb on Tuesday, with mid-90s in the forecast. We may reach the century mark on Wednesday in many locations.
A weak cold front passes sometime Wednesday, which could bring a stray shower along with it. By no means is this a guarantee for rainfall. While temperatures cool off slightly on Thursday behind the front, the mercury goes right back up to the upper-90s and near 100° by next weekend.
