An upper level high shifts westward and not only causes our rain chances to decrease but our heat to increase! We climbed to 90° yesterday and will likely top that number this afternoon with a high of 92°. To make matters worse, dewpoints will be in the middle and upper 60s which will make it feel a few degrees warmer than the actual thermometer reading.
The warmest air looks to settle in today and linger through Wednesday. Highs in the lower to middle 90s will be common and combined with high humidity it will make it feel like it's in the lower 100s. If you can, avoid doing anything strenuous outside between 10AM-4PM.
By the end of the week, the pattern might break down enough to allow part of the stormy corridor to shift back southward. With an increased chance for showers and storms that will mean more clouds and slightly cooler temperatures. Don't get too excited reading that, I am only talking about a degree or two difference.
Stay cool and stay safe!
STATISTIC: Did you know that heat kills more people each year than any other weather hazard?
