Cranking up the heat and humidity

Good Friday to one and all. Heat and humidity are on the increase today and this will continue into the weekend. As a matter of fact, the first week of July is going to feature more of the same. That said, we will also be tracking a few storms from time to time.

Highs today are mainly in the upper 80s to near 90, but the humidity will add to the uncomfortable factor. The heat index today will hit the middle 90s in most areas. There is a very small threat for isolated storms:

Saturday may be the hottest day of the bunch with most areas getting into the low 90s. Heat index values should range from 95-100, with a few spots being a little hotter than that in the west and north. Isolated storms will be possible once again.

A plume of moisture works in here for Sunday, leading to better coverage for showers and storms:

That should knock the heat down some. Any storm that develops could pulse up and become severe and put down torrential rains.

A cold front drops closer to the region on Monday as some moisture continues to push in from the south. That should fire up some additional showers and storms:

As we roll into the4th of July holiday, we stay very steamy, but showers and storms will continue to develop:

The steamy and stormy trend will then continue through late next week into the following weekend:

Cloudbursts are likely with some of the storms over the next week. Shocked? Didn’t think so.

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
