Temperatures around Cape Girardeau remain above average
Temperatures in and around Cape Girardeau were running 15 to 20 degrees above normal through Thursday, a National Weather Service meteorologist said late Thursday night.
Meteorologist Robin Smith said he expects the above-average temperatures to continue through today. A high of 75 is expected, Smith said.
According to the weather service's website there continues to be an elevated fire danger through Nov. 17 in Southeast Missouri. The Cape Girardeau County Commission's no-burn order remains in effect.
Smith said area residents can expect about a quarter-inch of rain during the day Saturday. There's also a slight chance of rain Monday.
"I don't know if it'll be enough to cancel the burn order," he said. "We're not looking at a whole lot of rain."
