End in Sight?

How long will this cool weather last? I have been getting that question a lot lately from people. Personally, I love having the "cooler" weather. People like KFVS12's weekend sports anchor Chad Fryman have been complaining about the below normal temperatures. Chad would prefer it to be 120° with humidity of 90°.

It appears that we could get back to the 90°'s by Tuesday. Models have been showing me some indications of lower 90°'s for Tuesday/Wednesday for a couple of days.

Below is a look at NOAA's global forecast model from last night. Read the graphic from right to left. The red line indicated the air temperature at the surface. The green line indicates the dew point temperature. The green bars indicate when we could see rain and how much rain we could see. (Click on the image to see a larger version.)

July is going to end up one of the coolest in a long time. Here is a look at area cities and how they compare to "normal" for the month of July through July 30.

  • Cape Girardeau, Missouri 5.2° below per day
  • Carbondale, Illinois 1.0° below per day
  • Paducah, Kentucky 3.3° below per day
  • Poplar Bluff, Missouri 4.4° below per day
