The run of below normal high temperatures we’ve experienced will end later this week as summertime heat builds back into the area.
Since July 24th, the high temperatures in Springfield have stayed below normal. That puts the run of relative cool at 26 days. We probably have two more to add before the streak ends.
This week, a ridge of high pressure is building over the central U.S. Some computer models center it up over our area by Saturday and Sunday. It looks like a return of highs in the nineties is in the cards for late in the week and into the weekend.
There are some indications that the ridge will hold even into next week.
Unlike the pattern of much of June and early August, all meaningful rain chances have disappeared from the forecast for at least the next week.
If your pool hasn’t gotten much use lately, this next weekend might be your ticket!
