Summer outlook for Mid-Missouri: ‘Near normal’
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Ask a meteorologist in the National Weather Service’s St. Louis office what this summer’s weather holds, and you get a two-word answer: “Near normal.”
This week, temperatures have been running about 10 degrees warmer than usual, with overnight lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s, and highs in the low- to mid-90s through next week — except for, maybe, Thursday and Friday, when high temperatures should drop into the high 80s if a predicted rain system gets here.
The National Weather Service has released a “local three-month temperature outlook ... as part of its ongoing efforts to improve service” to the public, the agency reported on its website, www.nws.noaa.gov/climate/index.php?wfo=lsx.
