Dangerous Heat...

>> Thursday, July 21, 2011

The heat will be up into the dangerous levels over the next few days. For the I-85 corridor, look for highs in the upper 90s to near 100 today into the weekend. For the I-95 corridor into the Sandhills, highs will exceed 100 in many spots.

When you factor the humidity into the equation, heat index values will exceed 105 at times, and that is dangerous type of heat. Some spots could see heat index values exceeding 110.

Please use lots of caution if you have to be outside for any extended period of time. Take frequent breaks in the air conditioning, and drink plenty of water. Also, please check on anybody that doesn't have air conditioning. Make sure your pets have plenty of fresh, cold water.

A few isolated storms will fire off the next few afternoons, but they will be few and far between. The storm chances look a little better for Sunday and especially Monday.

I still think we get a brief break from the heat Monday and Tuesday, but it sure looks like another big ridge will develop right overhead by the second half of next week, meaning another wave of heat.


Two tropical storms out there.....Bret and Cindy. Both are fish storms and will not impact land.

I was dumb enough yesterday to try to play some golf, and while everyone else was fine that played, I struggled after 9, the heat was getting to me. So that really is some serious stuff.

Man, you're brave! Unless you can get 9 in before 10am, forget it! Haha...
