Don’t look for a lot of surprises in the weather over the next seven days as summer temperatures park over the Ozarks.
We are about to wrap up a run of below normal high temperatures which is now at 29 days. If the streak doesn’t end today, then it certainly will over the next few days.
The cool temperature run featured no nineties and a lowest low of 55° on the 15th of August.
Now, a ridge of higher pressure aloft will mean a return to slightly above normal temperatures and basically a summer pattern of weather.
I see a very gradual climb in temperature over about the next days days. My forecast puts lower nineties in the Ozarks for much of next week.
Rain chances are minimal. A weak cool front sliding into eastern Missouri from the east on Friday could spark an isolated shower off to the east of Springfield but it’s a long shot at best.
The humidity is building however it appears the combination of this humidity and the forecast heat won’t be enough for advisories for the most part. It will be tracked on a daily basis.
Finally, did you notice the red moonrise and sunset last night? Smoke from western forecast fires appears to be adding an extra reddening to these events!
