Heat Advisory

Wherever you are this week — please look up your area and watch the heat. Across the nation, the heat wave is continuing and can be hazardous to your health. Travel — but stay safe and follow the US National Weather Service.

A heat advisory has been in effect nearly every day in July from noon on. The heat indexes are expected to reach 105 degrees. The day starts hot and gets hotter quickly, with temperatures expected to reach 90 degrees before noon and soar into the mid-to-upper 90s by the afternoon. The high humidity, with dew points near 70, will make it feel like 100 to 105 degrees.

This information is across the entire U.S. Please carefully watch yourself and those you care about. Wear a hat and watch your hydration.

If you’re spending long periods outside, it’s essential to hydrate and take breaks. An isolated storm may occur, but most areas will remain dry. Winds will be light from the southeast.

The evening will be partly cloudy and muggy. Temperatures around downtown will likely stay above 80 degrees, while cooler spots will settle in the low-to-mid 70s. Tuesday will be similar to Monday, with a slight chance that some spots could hit 100 degrees.

Heat indexes will again peak near 105 degrees. Late in the day, there might be a few storms, mainly east of Interstate 95, with light winds from the south.

Heat advisory in effect

Most sultry nights have temperatures near 80’s or higher in downtown areas. Wednesday’s heat and humidity will be on par with Monday and Tuesday, with highs in the mid-to-upper 90s and heat indexes over 100 degrees. There is approximately a 30 percent chance of some late-day storms as tropical moisture increases over the region.

Mugginess continues overnight, with lows in the 70s to near 80. Temperatures will not be as high on Thursday and Friday due to a stalling front and increasing cloud cover, but humidity levels will remain high. Showers and storms are possible on both days, with the likelihood of more numerous storms on Friday.

Some areas might experience heavy rain and potential flooding. Thursday’s highs are expected to be in the low 90s, and Friday’s highs may hold in the 80s. If you are headed to the western US, the heat is much hotter. The Arizona area, particularly Phoenix, got up to 115F today! Beware and be careful.
