While the heat and humidity will be bad over the next several days, this is extremely typical for mid to late July in our part of the world. We have also seen and experienced much worse. It's also very important to remember, it's still dangerous and deadly. From 2000 to 2015, heat killed more than lightning, floods, and tornadoes across the country.
|The European model today shows the ridge right on top of us with the jet stream well to the north. This cuts off our rain chances and we cook!|
|In 7-10 days, the high moves west allowing a trough to develop. This would bring relief.|
|Remember, heat kills. Please take breaks, stay hydrated, and check on those who are sensitive to this heat.|
