Even though high pressure prevails at the surface, a weak upper
level disturbance skirted across the area this afternoon and will
linger through tonight. As a result, clouds were on the increase and
showers were moving deeper into the Quad State from the west. Early
morning low temperatures averaged from the lower 50s along the
Interstate 64 corridor from Mt. Vernon Illinois to Evansville
Indiana, upwards to warmer mid 60s over west Kentucky. Showers were
most prevalent over southeast Missouri through midday.
The weak upper level disturbance will slowly move across the area
tonight increasing chances of precipitation from west to east. A few
rumbles of thunder are also possible with the light precipitation.
High pressure will then take control once again stemming southward
from out of the Great Lakes area followed by another cold front
Thursday prompting another mention of thundershowers late Thursday
afternoon and Thursday evening.
High temperatures will settle in around normals in the lower 70s.
The warmest days of the week appear to be Thursday and Friday as
temperatures are forecasted around 80 degrees. Low temperatures for
the most part are forecasted in the lower half of the 50s. Tuesday
night may be a little cooler in the mid 40s as clear skies
At least Saturday looks to be dry for the weekend until a chance of
showers enters into the forecast later Saturday night across the
western sections and then area wide Sunday.
