DANGEROUS HEAT CONTINUES - The NWS has issued an Excessive Heat Watch from Thursday afternoon to Friday evening. Temperatures will be in the mid 100s on both days with lows sticking in the 80s. Make sure you are doing everything you can to stay away from heat illnesses. Drink plenty of water, take frequent breaks from outside activity, and make sure you are close to an air-conditioned building. Furthermore, be sure to check up on the elderly frequently, as they are more prone to heat-related illnesses.
Not much has changed with the current forecast for the week. Please refer to yesterday's blog post for more details.
FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK - Not much change overall in the synoptic scale. In fact, we will only get hotter as the head towards the weekend. Highs will be in the low 100s on Wednesday, heating up to the mid 100s by Friday. That's why the Heat Advisory is in effect for our area.
Not much change for the weekend either. Expect much of the same weather again with afternoon highs in the low 100s with bright and sunny skies.
NEXT WEEK - It's looking increasingly likely that most of next week stays dry as well with pretty much the same weather; hot, sunny, and breezy with highs in the triple digits as we start to close out July.
TROPIX - All is quiet in the Atlantic Basin, and no new tropical cyclones are expected through the next week.
