MONDAY Update: Heat Advisory in Effect – Triple Digit Heat Indices

Good Morning!  Here’s my brief video forecast discussion.    


A massive Upper Level Heat Wave High is in control.

TODAY:    HEAT ADVISORY in effect.   Hot & humid today.  Sun/clouds  High 96. Heat index could be as high as 107.  That’s dangerous heat.  Slow down and take it easy.   Random, widely scattered this afternoon.  Showers & thunderstorms this evening & tonight.  .   Overnight low near 75. 

The Heat Advisory is not just for us.  It covers a multi-state region. 

Radar should be quiet today.  Any storms should be few and far between.  Here’s the HRRR model at 6PM. 

NEXT FEW DAYS:   Dangerous heat.  The Heat Index each day will be near or above the 105 danger range.  Highs in the middle 90’s.  Random mostly widely scattered storms in the afternoon & evening hours.  Small rain chance.  Very little day to day change.   

TROPICAL UPDATE:     There’s a brand Area to Watch in the western Caribbean.  NHC has a 20% chance of development next 5 days.

Meanwhile, it looks like a potentially busy week in the eastern Pacific. 

Thanks for reading this Blog this morning!

I’m getting on an airplane this morning, heading to the American Meteorological Society Conference in Milwaukee.  I return home Saturday. I’ll be with hundreds of my broadcast media Meteorologists from around the country — Listening and learning.  I’ll have a blog update for you every morning.  And, of course, you’ll still here my daily updates on the 8 station Bluewater Broadcast group.
