Major Heat Wave Starting


Remember those heat tips off to the side.

1. Thursday highs should be well into the 90’s with sunny skies. humidity values will be very low with red flag warnings in effect as well. Burn bans are in effect. Strong winds will make for ideal fire conditions. Heat advisories are in effect for parts of the region as well.

2. For Friday Once again sunny skies. Morning lows will fall to around 70 due to the low humidity and clear skies but temperatures will rebound to around 100.

3. Saturday and through Monday may feature a additional slight chance for a storm but continued very hot with highs near 100 possible.

4. The heat wave breaks down slightly with chances of scattered storms Tuesday and for July 4th taking temps down into the 90’s. Looks like about 10 days before the heat shifts from over us back to the central plains.

5. The cold PDO is really throwing a curve ball in seasonal forecasting right now. This will influence any forecasting for fall and winter. The cold PDO is the main cause in the main ridge of heat further east than expected so far this summer. We may be looking at winters like 51-52 than 76-77 for winter analogs now since the PDO is not turning around like ENSO. This point would require more research.
