Chance for more scattered storms and patchy fog Tuesday (9/5/22)
As the holiday weekend draws to a close, rain chances are diminishing over the next few days. Overcast skies today brought forth no measurable amounts of rain for Cape Girardeau, but areas to the north of the FOX 23 coverage area saw some amounts close to two inches with flash flooding.
Like Monday, high temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s for Tuesday as well with the chance for some patchy fog in the early morning hours. With mostly cloudy skies overnight, temperatures will fall into the upper 60s with calm winds.
With a similar setup to Monday, the Skeeter Meter will stay in the “Ugh” category due to the humidity and scattered chances for rain. With calm winds and cloudy skies, muggy conditions will continue into Tuesday with dew point temperatures near 70. With rain chances diminishing for Wednesday and Thursday, the Skeeter Meter drops to the “Medium” category as a stationary boundary begins to shift south and east.
Another system looks to bring more rain chances by the end of the week. Winds will shift to be out of the southeast by the end of the week, returning more moisture to the low levels of the atmosphere. Temperatures will continue to trend warmer until that system arrives.
