(St. Louis) Temperatures continue to rise in Missouri this summer.
The weather forecast calls for mid to upper 90’s in southeast Missouri for parts of next week.
Melissa Byrd, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in St Louis, says a strong ridge of high pressure is causing the heat.
Byrd warns the heat can cause problems for those who work outdoors or live in places without a way to cool down.
The average high temperature for July hangs around 90 degrees.
The all-time record high was 111 degrees set on July 25th, 1934.
