Another Hot Week

by

A strong ridge has built across the region over the past few days the ridge will be hard pressed to move out-of-the-way this week. The end result will be thunderstorms over the plains and upper midwest around the ridge and a core of hazy, hot and humid, thunderstorm free regions from the Ohio valley into the northeast. This means that with high pressure in control skies should be mostly sunny each day through Thursday with increasing humidity from a moist flow off the gulf and highs in the low to mid 90’s with overnight lows only falling into the upper 60’s and low 70’s. Once again heat index values may make a run at 100 a few times this week. A frontal system with some of the deeper tropical moisture should bring a good chance of storms by Saturday. I’ll have a tropical update in a day or two.
