General:

A heat dome that has been plaguing a majority of the nation finally drifts into our region. This creates hot and humid conditions today with highs in the mid 80s to lower 90s, combined with the humidity it will feel like it is in the 90s region wide. With these hot conditions comes a chance of isolated thunderstorms. Tomorrow will be a rerun of today but with highs and few degrees warmer with the heat index pushing into triple digits territory.

Brief:

The heatwave that has gripped a majority of the continental United States this past week finally makes its appearance over our region. Highs today will rise into the upper 80s to lower 90s with increasing humidity. Dewpoints start out in the 60s today but increase into the 70s making for very comfortable conditions. This makes for heat indices approaching the triple digits in the warmer valleys today. With today and tomorrow's hot and humid conditions strenuous outdoor activity can provide heat related illnesses. If you have plans to do high intensity activities today or tomorrow make sure to take plenty of breaks or possibly put them off until the heat wave breaks after the weekend. With such warm temperatures swimming and boating is a great option to keep cool and stay out of the heat. With this moist and hot air mass comes unstable conditions and this brings the chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. Any storm activity will be isolated to scattered but with such an unstable air mass storms could pop up at just about any moment this afternoon and evening. So if you are seeking reprieve from the heat in the form of water make sure to keep a close eye on the forecast and current radar. Tomorrow's highs will be a few degrees warmer and provide heat indices around 100 degrees in the deeper valleys. There is a chance of isolated to scattered thunderstorms tomorrow as well. Sunday includes highs in the 80s but it will still be hot. Real relief comes on Monday a cold front finally pushes through our region and temperatures return back to normal with much less humidity.

Winds:

South wind between 10 and 15 mph create wave heights between 1 and 3 feet, becoming 1 to 2 feet in the afternoon. Southwest winds at 5 to 10 mpg create wave height between 1 and 2 feet tomorrow.
