High Temperatures, Low Humidity Expected Through Sunday
As temperatures breach the 90 degree mark through the remainder of the week, humidity levels are expected to stay low. The low humidity will provide a more comfortable heat for area residents.
“We are looking at getting some of the warmer temperatures that we’ve had this year,” said David Clippert, of the Sedalia-Pettis County Emergency Management Agency. “This weekend we’re going to be looking at the low 90s to about 94 degrees. But, the good thing is that the humidity level isn’t going to be all that high.”
According to Clippert, humidity is expected to be around the 50 percent range.
“Generally, when the humidity level starts getting into the 70 percent range is when it really starts getting very uncomfortable,” Clippert said.
The Sedalia-Pettis County Emergency Management Agency doesn’t expect a lot of issues with the heat this weekend. There are no cooling shelters established, but citizens needing relief from the heat are able to cool off in any public building with air conditioning.
“Luckily, we haven’t had any heat advisories yet,” Clippert said. “But, when we start hitting the middle of July and into August it’s a good possibility.”
