THE WEATHER DISCO:
.
The southerly flow opened up…finally on Thursday…temps rising well into the 90’s…pure summer and plenty of humidity. Today…a slow moving cool front is on the way…taking most of the day to work thru STL… more clouds around…still hot and humid…being ahead of the the front much of the day…a few spot storms first think in the morning…a better shot of scattered storms in the afternoon and into the evening. The front sinks to the south…just to south and hangs up and waves…so it is close enough and in play all weekend long…mostly cloudy skies, slightly cooler in the 80’s but still humid…a few spot storms…thinking any action is limited for the weekend and into Monday…the storm track bows more to the north getting into next week…putting us back in a hot and humid pattern.
