Very warm, humid weather ahead

The hot summer becomes the humid summer.

Posted: Jul 31, 2018 6:43 PM

The summer up until this point has been outstanding for summer enthusiasts. For the folks that don't like the sun and heat, it's been miserable. The stats speak for themselves - July was the 7th warmest on record, with 27 days above 80 degrees and 3 days at or above 95! We're up to 9 days with temperatures at or above 90 degrees - but we don't expect to add more in the near future.

The weather pattern turns very warm and very humid as we head into the remainder of the week. A huge dome of high pressure situated in the Atlantic is serving as a heat and humidity pump. This high pressure system won't change too much over the next few weeks, meaning the heat and humidity aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Temperatures are expected to stay well above average through at least the next 1-2 weeks - which basically the first half of August.

In addition to the warmth, there will be the risk for rain. So far, we've managed to dodge heavy rain and flash flooding - which has occurred extensively in other parts in this pattern. Our luck may be coming to an end. Showers and storms are expected to return on Wednesday afternoon - with the risk of heavy rain on Friday.
