Memorial Day weekend is bringing us dry weather and a gradual warming trend. Temperatures will sit in the lower to mid-80s with overall sunny skies. If you are outside this afternoon, be cautious. Today is an Air Quality Alert Day. Ground-level ozone could cause breathing difficulties for children, the elderly, or those with lung or heart conditions. Avoid strenuous activity outdoors and take frequent breaks.

What’s Next: The 90s are back starting Wednesday and remain through the end of the week. Drought conditions have been worsening across Missouri and Illinois. Little rain is in the forecast this upcoming week. Watching for low rain or storm chances, mainly for next Friday & Saturday, but this likely won’t be enough to alleviate the ongoing dryness.
