Mon, 28 Jul 2014 15:01:11 GMT — Cooler than normal temperatures return to Mid-Missouri this week. Highs will be only in the lower-mid 80s through the weekend - nearly 5-10 degrees below normal at times. The cool down is thanks to a cold front that moved through Sunday and some upper level support. The jet stream is making a dip in the Midwest, allowing cool air to flow into the region.This latest below normal temperature trend gives the summer of 2014 the lowest amount of days with temperatures 90 degrees or higher in the last five years. Jefferson City has only reached the 90s 11 times from June 1 to the present. Compared to last year, that's 10 fewer times. 2012 saw the highest number of days with temperatures in the 90s or higher with 48 for the same time frame. There were several days in the 100s that year as well. No where in Mid-Missouri has reached the century mark so far this summer.Follow the KRCG 13 StormVision Weather Team for the latest updates. www.connectmidmissouri.com/weather
