...Heat Advisory remains in effect through Wednesday...
Lows this morning bottomed out in the lower 70s, followed by partly
sunny skies throughout the day so far. The combined heat and
moisture has resulted in another stuffy afternoon with temperatures
in the low to mid 90s by 3 PM and heat indices averaging in the 100
to 105 range.
Little relief will be felt over the next few days as a high pressure
system hovers over the region. Passage of a weak cold front will
allow temperatures to trend more towards normal with highs in the
upper 80s and low 90s. This front will also bring slight chances of
showers and thunderstorms to the northern half of the area through
As a result of continuing high moisture levels, we will
see heat index values in the mid to upper 90s and morning lows in
the low 70s through the rest of the week. As for the weekend, an
upper level system brings a good chance of showers and thunderstorms
as the uncomfortable heat continues.
