218 AM CDT Sat Aug 16 2014
Friday was another very pleasant weather day across the region
with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 80s. With the approach of
a frontal system to the east, variable cloudy skies had developed
by the evening hours with sprinkles and light rain falling along
the Interstate 64 corridor. Even though rainfall accumulations
were only a trace during the late evening hours, a more
concentrated area of rain moved across portions of southeast
Missouri and far southwest Illinois early this morning.
Temperatures around the area at 3 AM ranged from the upper 60s to
low 70s in many communities.
A more active weather pattern is in store for the area over the
weekend. Expect an increase in the chances for showers and
thunderstorms as a low pressure system, with associated fronts,
moves eastward from the central plains into the mid Mississippi
Valley. Chances for precipitation will continue into next week,
as the weather pattern remains unsettled. Temperatures will rise
into the upper 80s to around 90 degrees, with an increase of
humidity, lasting into early next week.
