...Heat Advisory remains in effect through Tuesday...
After morning lows in the lower 70s temperatures have heated back up
into the low to mid 90s across the region this afternoon under
mostly sunny skies. Along with dewpoints up in the low to mid 70s, heat
indices are averaging in the 100 to 105 range creating another
oppressive late summer day.
Little change in our weather pattern is expected over the next
couple days as the large upper level high pressure system remains
anchored over us. Temperatures look to tick down a couple degrees
into mainly the low 90s by Wednesday and then a couple degrees
either side of 90 for Thursday and Friday. Low temperatures will
remain elevated in the low 70s as high moisture levels continue to
plague the region. Heat index values will still be rather
uncomfortable averaging in the mid to upper 90s through the end of
As for precipitation chances, it does appear that a weak back door
cold front will begin to enter the area later Wednesday and stick
around through at least Thursday leading to somewhat better coverage
of showers and thunderstorms particularly across the northeastern
half of the area.
