I do not love what it does to St. Louis during summer. Apart from the occasional thunderstorm, it travels unimpeded across the blue skies of the day, skies that grow heavier with ozone and particulate pollution as the season progresses. This year is looking like a scorcher – already June's weather statistics from the NOAA:
AVERAGE MONTHLY: 79.5
DPTR FM NORMAL: 5.2
HIGHEST: 95 ON 18,13
LOWEST: 65 ON 10
show a 5.2 F above normal average temperate and the forecast is for an upcoming week of high 90s.
