ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Okay, strap yourself in and get ready to stay cool as we deal with an intense and dangerous and Thursday. Historic heat, going with 107 degrees on Thursday afternoon. That’s a record for the day and a record for the month of June. A little cooler Friday and over the weekend. But still thinking 100+ into Monday. There is not a drop of rain in sight. A bone dry weather pattern and atmosphere.

The good news, with the very dry air. Yes, the afternoon’s will be intense. But its like being in the desert. We can handle it. It’s not our typical wet wash-cloth heat wave. With the low humidity night time temps will cool off. Not a cold snap, but late night and early morning will feel okay.

Thursday:

Tons of sun…Low humidity and record heat
Winds: west 5-15 m.P.H.
High: 107 degrees….The record 104 in 1952…The hottest ever in june…105 also in 1952

Thursday night:

Clear skies and warm
Winds: west 5-15 m.P.H.
Low: 79 degrees

Friday:

Lots of sun. A warm morning and intense dry heat for the afternoon
Winds: west 5-15 m.P.H
High: 104 degrees…The record 105 in 1952
