Hot & Humid Continues

Posted: Updated:

July 19



Today there is a LPS (Low Pressure System) over the ORV (Ohio River Valley) that is moving toward New England, with a cold front stretched through the SE US. There is a slight risk for severe weather, coupled with a good chance for Scattered showers and thunderstorms, associated with this system. There is a moderate Ridge of High Pressure over parts of the gulf Coast.

To read our latest Tropical Outlook, follow the link below to the Hurricane Center.

There is a Ridge of High Pressure that is anchored over the Central Plains that stretches into Louisiana. With High Pressure, comes clear skies, light & variable winds and low rain chances. This pattern is typical during the summer months. So, we will only see a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. This Ridge will move out of the area throughout the overnight hours and tomorrow. However, we can expect to see gradually increasing clouds and rising rain chances through the weekend. Winds will be light and variable with high humidity values.

For the rest of the day
Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with In & Out cloud cover and a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms through the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 90's with high humidity values making it feel 105. Most of the viewing area will see partly cloudy skies and there will only be a few, scattered showers. As of 12:00pm, there was not any rain in the area. Winds will remain light to moderate and out of the South throughout the day. Overnight, expect some clearing with tapering rain chances and a muggy feel.

For the rest of the 7day planner
During the next couple of days we will see rain chances go up, throughout the weekend. High temperatures will continue to range through the 90's through the 7day planner. However, high humidity values will make conditions feel much hotter than they are. Peak Heat Index values may reach 108 at times. 
TODAY...Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and hot with a (30%) chance for showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Highs 92-98. The peak heat index may reach 105. SW wind 2-10mph, except stronger and variable near storms.
