Today was by far the hottest day of the year for many! I saw heat index values in the 100 to 105 range as common with some as high as 110. Tomorrow we will continue hot weather with more scattered storms possible. Temps will be about 5 to 8 degrees cooler. Around 90 in the north, but still mid 90s and some upper 90s south.
Temps will come down further as the front comes through by about another 5 to 8 degrees. And then another 5 degrees or so on Thursday. Thursday will be a lot cooler as a front gets hung up over southern VA and NC and scattered storms will continue through the entire period. Temps will remain in the mid 80s.
The tropics are a "little" active. The wave off of Africa started losing a lot of its convection today, but the rotation remains. Another wave is poised to come off the coast. Of note, long term forecast models do show some threat of storminess off the East coast, but that is all model thought as of now. If things did come together as some models say, this could also be a big rain producer for the east coast.
Longer term there is also the likelihood of another surge in heat next week. We will have to watch and see!
