Clouds rapidly started developing late this morning, leaving partly
sunny conditions through mid afternoon. Temperatures and humidity
levels remained rather comfortable for mid July, with temperatures
reaching the 70 to 75 degree range by mid afternoon.
High pressure will slowly drift east across the Midwest the next
couple days. Fair skies will prevail, and temperatures will warm by
a couple degrees each day. However, a storm system moving across the
lower Mississippi Valley will bring a chance of showers and
thunderstorms into southern Missouri Thursday night, spreading east
into the Ohio Valley on Friday.
Low temperatures across the Midwest tonight will range from the 40s
across the north half of Wisconsin, to the mid 50s over much of
Missouri, and the Ohio Valley. Highs on Thursday will generally
range from 75 to 80 degrees.
