Heat has arrived and humidity! 100 degree Heat! Tropics?


If you cannot tell, the moisture in the air increased dramatically overnight! We will see Mid 90s (it will feel like at least 100) in the north and temps approaching 100 (it will feel like 105) in the southern half or the forecast area.

100 degrees likely for most areas away from the coast and east of the mountains tomorrow! I suspect we will see heat advisories for tomorrow and the air quality will be somewhat poor!

Tuesday will see a begin in the dip in the temps for northern half of the area (low to mid 90s) and then Wednesday 80s. Southern half will still be near 100 degrees and then 90s Wednesday.

Rain chances increase Tuesday in the north and then area wide Wednesday. We will see More chances of rain Thursday and Friday which will knock most temperatures back to the mid and upper 80s.

From the NHC:

A LOW PRESSURE AREA ASSOCIATED WITH A TROPICAL WAVE IS PRODUCING AN
AREA OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BETWEEN THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS
AND THE COAST OF AFRICA. THIS SYSTEM IS SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF
ORGANIZATION AND COULD BECOME A TROPICAL DEPRESSION DURING THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES WESTWARD AT 10 TO 15 MPH. THERE IS A
MEDIUM CHANCE...30 TO 50 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A
TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS. REGARDLESS OF
DEVELOPMENT...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS
COULD AFFECT PORTIONS OF THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS OVER THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS.
