After a stormy weekend, our Monday is much quieter. Morning temperatures started off in the 60s to low 70s. The cold front that brought us the storms is now in southern Missouri and continues to move away from the Tri-States. Since the front passed, it has brought in cooler and drier air. We have already hit our daytime high for the day of 73 degrees, which happened shortly after midnight. Through the afternoon we should see temperatures get close to 70. Dew points have also fallen behind the front. At this noon hour, dew points are in the 40s and 50s. That means no humidity. On top of all of that, the front also brought in some breezy winds. Winds are out of the northwest at about 10-20 mph. We could have some gusts of 25-30 mph through the day. A few showers have passed through the southern tier of the Tri-States. But we should now be done with the rain for the day. As we head into the afternoon and evening, the clouds will gradually clear out. By Monday night, we'll have mostly clear skies and light winds. Those conditions will allow our temperatures to drop pretty easily. So I'm expecting lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. Therefore, you may want your light jacket come Tuesday morning.
When will the heat and humidity return? Those details are coming up on WGEM News at 5 PM.
