First Alert Forecast

An excessive heat warning now is in effect for all of central Missouri through Saturday evening. Temps are expected to reach the middle to upper 90s during this time and heat indicies will be in the range of 100 to 109. Be sure to take steps to stay cool, hydrated and out of direct sunlight for long periods of time as our bodies are not efficient at cooling by sweat in a humid environment.

Sunshine will fill the skies today and unlike earlier this week there will be a slight breeze. Winds will pick up out from the southwest at 7-11 mph and should help mix the air just enough to relieve some mugginess from the air. Temps will rise into the middle 90s with a heat index around 104.

Hot and humid for Friday and Saturday as the heat wave peaks. Sunshine will reign overhead as temps are expected to reach the upper 90s with a heat index around 107 to 109. Evening temps will only cool into the upper 70s during this time.

Relief is in the forecast!!! A slow moving cold front will begin its approach towards Missouri late Saturday evening, providing a chance for thunderstorms on Sunday. This front is expected to pass through the state by Monday and should help cool temps into the upper 80s early next week.
