As I mentioned a few days ago, the National Weather Service is saying that 'dangerous heat' can be expected starting Sunday, August 20, 2023 through all of Missouri.

He explained that triple digit heat indexes are almost a certainty and this will worsen the drought that has dogged most of Missouri through the first half of 2023.

He says that this will be the worst heat wave of the year and could last anywhere from 5 to 7 days. Yes, it's summer reminding us that it's not done with us yet and may not be for the foreseeable.

The heat may carry over into Fall even

NOAA's Climate Prediction Center is saying that the heat could bring us a slightly warmer than usual Fall. Farmer's Almanac agrees that it could not only be warmer this Fall, but also stormy throughout much of Missouri, too.

Time will tell how the rest of the year pans out, but you can count on the hottest temperatures of the year to impact Missouri within days. That is almost a certainty at this point.
