BRINGING BACK THE 90s!
It's been a month since most of us have last had a 90° day. Seems kind of odd considering we're in the middle of summer. Well temperatures have been running near/below normal through July:
We've not been running below normal by a ton, but by one to four degrees across the Upper Midwest.
The last time Cedar Rapids and the Quad Cities both hit 90° was on JUNE 19th. Now temperatures are on the way up.
Temperatures in the upper levels will be increasing and will be running above normal over the next few days:
We'll have plenty of sunshine each day, temperatures will climb into the low 80s Monday:
And by Thursday we'll be near 90°:
Cedar Rapids averages around eight 90° days and the Quad Cities nine. By the end of the week we'll likely add a few to the month.
Humidity will start to increase as the week goes on, but won't be terribly high. Dew points will start in the mid 60s on Monday - feeling sticky -
By Thursday dew points will start to get near 70 - getting uncomfortable -
Little to no precipitation is expected through the week... there may be some rain by the weekend.
