...Heat Advisory remains in effect through Tuesday...
A warm muggy start to the weekend greeted us this morning with lows
in the mid 70s area wide. Temperatures and humidity levels really
took off as the day progressed resulting in extremely soupy
unpleasant conditions. 3pm temperatures ranged from around 90 where
cloud cover has dominated to the mid 90s in areas that have seen
more sunshine. Heat indices have been between 100 and 110 due to the
ridiculously high dewpoints in the mid 70s to near 80 degrees.
Isolated showers and thunderstorms have dotted the area today but
haven`t done much at all to temper the heat.
The upper level ridge will continue to dominate the weather over the
Quad-State region through Tuesday with daily highs in the 90s
combined with high humidity to produce heat indices from 100 to 105.
A cold front looks to approach the area by midweek resulting in
increased chances of showers and thunderstorms followed by
temperatures returning to near seasonable levels by the end of the
