Burst Of Heat

This will be a brief, but I will have a more in-depth post soon.  It's looking like a burst of heat and humidity will arrive by Monday, but it should not last too long.  It's not going to get cool, but the heat will back off as a new front enters the state.  I expect widespread triple digit heat index temperatures Monday into Tuesday, then temperatures decrease and rain chances increase.  The best chance for storms will be during the heating of the day.  How long will the front stick around?  With the 4th of July around the corner, we'll have to really watch the forecast.  Again, I'll have more soon.

The GFS valid at 1PM Tuesday indicates heat index values near 100 across much of the state.  This is courtesy of

By Tuesday morning, July 1, there are already signs the flow becomes northwesterly once again allowing fronts to slowly drift to the south.  This is why I do not expect the intense heat and humidity to stick around too long.
