1. The front has moved south of the region reducing humidity to normal levels and temps down a bit. Lows should Be near 70 with highs in the lwo 90’s Friday and Saturday.
2. By Sunday we return to southerly flow which will allow highs to rise a little each day through Thursday as a ridge of high pressure will strengthen over the region. The good news this time is dewpoints are expected to be in the 60′s instead of the 70′s leading to lower heat index values. With the strong high pressure in place no precipitation is expected in the foreseeable future through late next week.
High temperature & heat index ranges each day for the heat wave
Sunday 91-96 (93-99)
Monday 94-99 (95-102)
Tuesday 97-102 ( 101-106)
Wednesday 96-101 ( 103-108)
Thursday & next Friday 95-100 ( 102-107)
Once again heat advisories appear likely over the next week. As always exercise caution when out in the heat.
I will be out of town on vacation next week delaying the next post till August 15th sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
