400 AM CDT THU SEP 3 2015
It was another warm afternoon yesterday, with fair weather cumulus
clouds developing just before noon, and light and generally variable
winds. However, over the Pennyrile region of Kentucky, stratus
clouds were more common through mid-afternoon. Also, in the mid-
afternoon, isolated locations in western Kentucky and southeastern
Missouri actually experienced a brief shower. One shower in Scott
County Missouri produced lightning. Highs were in the lower half of
the 90s across most of the Quad State region. Among the exceptions
were Carbondale Illinois and southern parts of the Pennyrile and
Purchase areas where it was cooler. Some hours after midnight,
whatever wisps of cirrus clouds were left had dissipated.
Temperatures fell into the upper half of the 60s at most locations,
and some patchy fog, some dense, developed in many areas.
General high pressure will continue over the Quad State region
through the weekend. However, isolated showers and thunderstorms are
possible this afternoon. Otherwise, expect clear to partly cloudy
skies and rather warm temperatures for this time of year.
