National Weather Service Explains Unseasonably Cool Weather

While no one seems to be complaining, high temperatures in the mid-70’s are not a normal occurrence in the middle of July.

We spoke with National Weather Service Meteorologist Jayson Gosselin, who explained this week’s unseasonably cool weather.

“Fortunately, we are having a pattern similar to what we saw in the middle of June,” said Gosselin. “Obviously the temperatures in June are going to be a lot cooler than July, but we are having a flow from northern Canada, coming straight down south toward the Mid-Mississippi Valley, yielding highs today and the next couple days in the 70s.”

Gosselin told us we may expect to see these cooler temperatures through Thursday, when a slow warming trend will begin.  Temperatures Thursday and Friday are expected in the upper 70s and then in the lower 80s over the weekend. Temperatures should return to around 90 degrees Monday.
