TODAY: A chance of patchy fog before 8 or 9 a.m. and sunny skies all day. Pleasant with highs in the mid-80s.
TOMORROW: The 4th is another gorgeous day in the upper 80s with sunny skies. UV index will be high both days this weekend - you can sunburn in as little as 20 minutes when exposed. Carry plenty of sunscreen and water as you head outdoors.
EXTENDED: We're clear in the low to mid-70s by fireworks time on Sunday evening. Next week, we get under high pressure early on, with temperatures rising into the low 90s Monday and Tuesday, and a cold front settling to our north could bring a chance for showers and a few storms between Tuesday night and early Thursday. This retreats back north through the end of the week, so temperatures will still be in the upper 80s once showers retreat late in the week. Rain amounts for the entire 7-day stretch will be less than 0.5" total. Since the start of meteorological summer on June 1 we have recorded 13.13" of rain, putting us 8.75" above average for the time frame. River levels are steady but will drop below flood stage late this weekend. Jefferson City and Hermann are currently in moderate flood stage.
