Remaining warm and dry (8/23/22)
After another warm and dry day on Tuesday, it will be another cool night heading into Wednesday morning. We expect low temperatures in the upper-50s and lower-60s on Wednesday morning. Again, you may encounter some patchy fog during your morning commute.
We’re continuing the warm and dry pattern on Wednesday too, although temperatures may be a tad warmer in a few areas. We’re forecasting highs near 90° in and around Cape Girardeau.
Wednesday will be our last day with relatively lower humidity. While it’ll still be noticeable on Wednesday, computer model guidance suggests a steady increase in humidity through Friday. As a result, we’re bumping up the Skeeter Meter over the next three days.
As far as rain chances are concerned, there is a very small chance for a spotty shower in the Bootheel and in northwest Tenessee on Wednesday and Thursday. However, we’re dry elsewhere (including Cape Girardeau).
A stray shower cannot be ruled out everywhere on Friday, but again, it’s an extremely small chance. If you’re hoping to see some rainfall, your better bet to see some of it will be early next week.
