Spring to Summer weather today

Posted: Updated:

Another day of sunshine is good news, especially in light of the great concerns we have along the Mississippi River for flooding in the next few weeks.

The threat of record high river levels is real enough to prompt disaster relief status for counties along the Mississippi River 'before' the event happens.

Although we are avoiding the rain here at home, we do see more showers upstream in Missouri. That rain to the north will add insult to injury in our impending flood problem along the Mississippi River. Highway 61 is the first target.

Expect highs to approach the 80 degree mark for today and get warmer over the weekend. Saturday and Sunday temps will climb into the mid to upper 80s with plenty of sunshine.

In fact, the UV index will be high, so sunscreen would be a good idea as well. Next week temps will climb into the 90s, a bit ahead of schedule with the summer 'muggy' feel.
