...Heat Advisory remains in effect...
No relief from the sweltering heat and humidity was felt today as
morning lows were in the low to middle 70s. Scattered cloud cover
and intense heating are allowing 3 pm temperatures range from the
upper 80s in southern Illinois to the middle 90s in western Kentucky
and southeast Missouri. Heat index values are making it feel like
100 to 105 degrees in much of the Quad-State area.
High pressure over the Southeast continues to dominate the flow
today and will linger into early next week. This will keep
uncomfortable heat and moisture in the area, making for dangerous
afternoon and early evening heat indices upwards of 105 degrees.
This pattern should finally break during the middle of next week,
allowing for around normal temperatures return with highs in the
middle to upper 80s.
