Record highs possible
The record high for Friday is 82 set back in 1987. That record for Cape Girardeau is in jeopardy! Our high for the day is going to be close to 80 degrees…only two degrees away from that record! We’ll start the day very close to our average high and actually get there by 9am (62 degrees). We warm quickly into the 70s by noon and top out around 80 by mid-afternoon.
After that 80 degree day on Friday, we cool off thanks to a cold front. We’ll see a chance for storms early, then clearing out and remaining cool. Highs will be in the middle and upper 60s Saturday and Sunday.
As we head past the weekend (change your clocks!), we warm back up a little and continue with the lack of precipitation. We’ll see highs in the lower 70s with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
