Scattered storms on Sunday; Intense heat builds next week

Thunderstorms were a lot more widespread on Saturday, with many in the northern sections of the coverage area seeing the bulk of the activity. Storms had a harder time getting south of Cape Girardeau.

An isolated storm is not out of the question overnight and into Sunday, but the overall odds are low. Lows on Sunday morning should be in the lower-70s.

It’ll be warm and muggy on Sunday, with highs near 90°. Scattered storms are in the forecast again on Sunday, bringing another opportunity to see some much-needed rain.

The heat and humidity aren’t going away anytime soon, so mosquitos will likely be very active for the rest of the holiday weekend.

As we get farther into next week, the heat continues to build. We could be nearing triple-digit heat on many days. If you’re looking for any relief from the intense heat, you’ll likely have to wait until next weekend.
