Arlene and the heat


1. tropical storm Arlene is heading into Mexico today and will have no impact on our weather to the broad observer. My thinking is looking at the strong ridge over the plains as a bubble it will bend it on it’s southern side. This could be a cause in a northeast surge of the ridge over the weekend.

2. A frontal boundary may attack this boundary for storm chances by Sunday. Otherwise expect highs near 90 and lows in the 60’s to low 70’s with hot and humid conditions. sinking air  along with lack of a boundary will prevent storms despite the hot and humid airmass till Sunday. Will update this weekend regarding the 4th and the next potential front.

– I’m concerned temepratures Saturday may be a touch warmer say mid 90’s in spots this coupled with dewpoints from 70-80 may make for some heat index values

Bowling green modeled max heat index values for Saturday

ECMWF 00z- 112

NAM 12z- 105

GFS 12z- 104
