Summer 2022: A season of extreme weather in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Last summer was a season of extremes in St. Louis.

Before summer even started, it was really warm. The St. Louis area hit 90 degrees on May 10th and 94 degrees on May 11th and has never looked back. Also, on May 19th we had eight confirmed tornadoes.

While June started with normal temperatures. But by the middle of the month we were fine in the heat. We only had five days below 90 degrees, with the hottest day being June 13th with a record-breaking 100 degrees. The region was also three inches below normal rainfall.

July continued the hot and dry phase with further record temperatures above one hundred degrees. That ended on Monday, July 25, when record rain began to fall. We got over 9 inches of rain on the first lap.

The extreme rain hit the area a week later, on August 3, 2022. This time, more than four inches of rain fell. This meant more flash floods.

It was the wettest 14 days in St. Louis history. Thanks to heavy rain in early August, we ended the month with above-average rainfall. Summer 2022: A season of extreme weather in St. Louis
