We came very close to setting a record low temperature today:
- Record Low: 53° in 1924
- Today’s Low: 54°
The weather pattern will allow for a warming trend by the weekend, but between now and July 4th it will stay cooler than average. And, there is a chance of a few rain showers and thunderstorms in the next 36 hours. There will likely be very little organization to any showers and thunderstorms that form, but there will likely be a few downpours around the area between now and tomorrow night:
There is a weak upper level storm near the Mississippi River and it is drifting west. If we had higher dew points (low level moisture values) there would be more wide spread and heavier rain from this system approaching from the east. The dew points have been over forecasted by the models all year long. It is very rare to struggle to get the dew points higher in July. It certainly is making it feel quite comfortable out there.
If you are heading out to the pool the next two days keep your eye to the sky and we will keep you updated on any developing showers. Thank you for spending a few minutes reading the Action Weather Blog and have a terrific Tuesday. The EOI (Eat Outside Index) is again near a TEN today.
