Oppressive heat and humidity...

>> Thursday, July 22, 2010

Heat and humidity will continue to be our big weather stories over the next few days. Highs will be in the mid 90s today.....even upper 90s in some spots, and heat index values will exceed 100 degrees at times. While a few isolated storms can't be ruled out, the majority of us should remain dry today.

The heat will reach its apex tomorrow into the weekend. Highs tomorrow and Saturday will be in the upper 90s to around 100 degrees across the region, and heat index values will likely eclipse 105 at times during the afternoons.

Better chances of some showers and storms arrive early next week as a weakening cold front approaches. Some afternoon storms are possible Sunday with better chances Monday and Tuesday afternoon.


A couple of areas to watch. First, our disturbance near Hispaniola continues to battle shear, but there are some developmental possibilities. That system will wind up in the Gulf this weekend.

The second area is way down in the Bay of Campeche. Some slow development is possible in that region, but whatever forms will likely move into Mexico sooner rather than later.
