It turned out to be a cloudy day yesterday after all, for most of
the day. By late afternoon, the clouds started to break up in the
northern and western parts of the Quad State Region. The last area
to clear was the Purchase area of Kentucky and southeastern
Illinois, and that wasn`t until around sunset. Winds were light and
generally out of the north, and highs were delightfully cool for
this time of year. The lower to middle 70s were seen for highs,
except for Poplar Bluff and westward where fewer clouds allowed
temperatures to climb into the upper 70s. By midnight, winds were
calm almost everywhere, skies were clear, and temperatures had
already dropped into the upper 50s and lower 60s, on the way to lows
in the middle to upper 50s.

Sunny pleasant days and cool clear nights will prevail through the
holiday weekend under an area of dry high pressure. Winds are
expected to pick up out of the southwest by the end of the weekend,
increasing humidity somewhat west of the Mississippi River. A chance
of showers and thunderstorms returns to the I-64 corridor by Sunday
