WEDNESDAY Update:  Heat Advisory Continues –  Scattered Strong Storms

Good Morning!  It’s the same song, just a different day.  Rinse and Repeat.  Yesterday the Heat Index reaches 110.  The Heat Advisory continues through at least Thursday.  We expected severe storms yesterday, and sure had our share there were several warnings and several wind damage reports. Today the entire area is in yet another severe weather risk today. Not as many storms today, but some could produce damaging wind gusts.  Expect more of the same over the next 5 days.  Heat, humidity and scattered random PM storms.  We’ll be in the upper 90’s over the weekend. Here’s my brief forecast discussion.

TODAY:  Heat Advisory continues.  High near 95.  Dangerous Heat Index as high as 107.  Random scattered PM Storms.  Some could be strong to severe with damaging wind gusts.  Low tonight 76

Radar will not be nearly as active as yesterday.  But, the storms that do for could be quite strong in this kind of intense heat.  This Future Radar snapshot is probably under done. 

A Marginal Severe Risk covers most of the area again today.   Damaging wind gusts are the main risk.

 The Heat Advisory continues in effect today and Thursday.  Expect the Heat Index to reach the 105 to 110 range.

Various Heat Alerts stretch from Texas to Florida. 

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Intense Heat with triple digit heart indices will continue. Heat advisory at least through Thursday.  There will be Random hit or miss storms each day, especially in the afternoon and evening. Very little day to day change.   The hottest days will be over the weekend.

Over the weekend, with the Upper Heat Dome expanding again, highs will be in the upper 90’s with dangerous Heat Indices.

BEACH OUTLOOK:  Dangerous Heat Indices Friday through Sunday.  Scattered Random storms. Highs upper 80’s to near 90.  Gulf Water: 87.
