Extreme Heat Coming This Week

Hi everyone. Even though been a while since my last post, I will continue to update the blog as we head into the dog days of summer and beyond.

Our area is currently under an Excessive Heat Warning, which is in effect from Wednesday afternoon through Friday night. This heat wave will be fueled by a strong Bermuda high sitting off the Atlantic coast. Temperatures will be in the high 90s and could reach 100 or hotter in some urban areas. The heat indices for Wednesday to Friday will climb near 105 degrees A cold front will sweep through the area on Friday night. Temperatures should moderate into next week before another we heat up again by July 1st.

Sweltering Heat


The tropics have been quiet. There have been a few disturbances over the past few weeks that had a small chance to turn into tropical cyclones. None, however, have really turned into anything of note.

The El Niño is starting to take over and it is looking like it will continue to dominate into next Spring and Summer:
