Dave Murray’s Latest STL forecast and weather disco…FRIDAY…July 24, 2015:

***The rise in temperature and humidity will start to take place on this Friday…still okay…but more of a summer feel…a feel that will increase over the weekend and into early next week…lets watch for a few thunderstorms over the weekend…but expect plenty of rain-free time***

FRIDAY:

Partly sunny.. alittle warmer and more humid
WINDS: Southeast 5-15 M.P.H.
HIGH: 89 degrees

FRIDAY NIGHT:

Clear skies…warm and humid
WINDS: Southeast 10-15 M.P.H.
LOW: 75 DEGREES.

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY:

Mix of clouds and sun…hot and humid…watch for some storms…when and where they happen…very efficient rain makers
WINDS: South 10-20 M.P.H.
HIGH: 92 DEGREES.

THE WEATHER DISCO:

The two players of summer still very much in play the next several days…the summer dome of high pressure and the northwest flow. The northwest flow will retreat a little to the north and that will allow the dome of summer to expand and flex its muscles into the middle of the nation. The overall trend will be for hot and humid weather…but nothing super extreme with temperatures…but the humidity will be high(whats new!) The key to the weekend…every once in a while…the northwest flow will look for a weakness in the summer dome…and when that happens…there will be some fast moving and scattered thunderstorms…very efficient rain makers…ie. heavy rain. So dry time yes…but when some storms move in…we will know it… so not a dry weekend…but expect dry time. More of a spot thunderstorm pattern for Monday and Tuesday…alittle warmer and more humid…a cold front arrives on Wednesday with some storms and a cool down after the front….an active pattern for summer
