Turn down the heat!

After enjoying unusually cool temperatures for most of the summer, Boone County residents finally felt the heat Thursday. Temperatures in the low 90s combined with high humidity to produce heat indices of nearly 110 degrees at times. The county was one of 11 in mid-Missouri under a heat advisory from 2 to 8 p.m. Thursday.

On Hartfield Drive off Scott Boulevard, a construction crew for Kirby McKenzie Construction continued to put up the framework for a new home despite the heat. But the workers — and other Boone County residents — can expect relief this weekend. According to the National Weather Service, a cold front will move into mid-Missouri by Saturday.

The forecast calls for rain and temperatures in the low 80s and mid-70s. Next week should begin with temperatures in the low 80s, slightly lower than average for this time of year.
