Sep 16 - Another hot and dry day is on tap as a strong upper level ridge remains centered over the Mid-Mississippi Valley. There will be too much subsidence and a capping inversion in place to support any sort of shower or thunderstorm activity.
With 850 mb temperatures virtually unchanged from yesterday, we have gone close to persistence for highs today. Highs will once again be in the lower to middle 90s over most locations. Springfield will be very close to a record high today.
