Message of the Day

- Today will see a break from the oppressive heat and humidity.
Dangerously hot conditions return starting tomorrow afternoon
lasting toward the weekend.

Detailed Discussion

A little bit of cloud cover and some isolated storms brought some
slight relief from the heat yesterday that continues through the day
today. Temperatures are hovering around 90 degrees. While that does
not sound like a massive cooldown, temperatures are expected to heat
back up to the upper 90s with heat index values exceeding 100 - 105
degrees toward midweek.

A large upper level ridge continues to loom over much of the CONUS.
This keep skies relatively clear outside of diurnally driven
cumulus. Southerly low to mid level winds continue advecting in more
moisture dragging heat indices up over the coming days. Wednesday
and Thursday heat indices are expected to reach 105 - 108 for much
of the area. Practicing heat safety is paramount during this period,
especially for those doing things outside. Remember to drink plenty
of water and take frequent breaks in shaded areas or air
conditioning if possible.

Heat continues to be the primary headline into the weekend. Toward
the end of the week a frontal system moves into the region which
brings the opportunity for some isolated showers and thunderstorms.
Uncertainty remains if the front will make its way through the
entire region or if it may stall out somewhere across NW MO.
Regardless, muggy conditions are expected to continue for the next
several days.
