Climbing temperatures likely for late August

After the hottest July recorded globally, Mid-MO cooled down early this month to near or below-average temperatures. But the summer heat is not done with us just yet as long-term forecasts trend back to warmer than normal. The next several weeks could see persistent dryness as well, adding on to drought from months past.

Temperatures by late this week could already approach the lower 90s as high pressure expands to our west. This could extend further into the week after as this pattern holds, and a heat dome centers itself overhead. Long-term models don't hint at a pattern change until well into the month, with still warmer air overhead several weeks out. This heat on the way will be comparable to much of what we saw late last month, with the feels-like approaching triple-digits. This is typically the hottest time of year for Mid-Missouri ahead of the fall cooldown.
