.DISCUSSION...
Hot and humid today. Heat index values near and above 105 degrees
have occurred this afternoon so a heat advisory is in effect until
7 pm this evening. Hot and humid conditions are expected again
Tuesday. However, dewpoints should be a few degrees lower which
would lead to slightly lower heat index values. With this in mind,
will hold off on issuing a heat advisory for Tuesday for now, but
after some more analysis later shifts may need to issue one.

Models show upper ridge affecting at least parts of the area
throughout the week. This will lead to warm/hot temperatures. The
humid conditions may alleviate some as the week progresses with
dewpoints lowering a little. Meanwhile, a long wave trough will
move into and across portions of the Western U.S. this week.
Models continue to slow this system down and now show a cut-off
low developing over the Southwest U.S. this weekend. Showers and
thunderstorms will remain possible over the weekend into early
next week but with the slower movement of the upper system then
the onset of rain will likely be delayed some from previous
forecasts.
