EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 8 PM SATURDAY…
HEAT INDEX VALUES Up to 110 with temperatures in the upper 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.
TEMPERATURE…Highs each afternoon will be in the mid to upper 90s.
Dangerously high temperatures and humidity could quickly cause heat stress or heat stroke if precautions are not taken. The very young, the elderly, those without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
Storms and rain have clear the Tri-States. Overnight, clouds will clear out and temperatures won’t drop too much overnight. Early morning lows will be in the upper 60s and low 70s.
A very slight chance for a stray shower or storm in the morning, mainly for the northern stretch of the Tri-States. Otherwise, it will be mostly sunny.
An upper level ridge will become stronger, especially tomorrow afternoon, blocking any cool air from the north. A strong high pressure system will develop over the deep south of CONUS, which help keep conditions down right hot. The amount of moisture in the air is going to make it feel oppressive for the next several days and even cause it to not cool down much at night.
Highs tomorrow through Saturday will be in the upper 90s near 100, but feeling like it’s over 105. Overnight temperatures will be near 80. Take extra precautions over the next several days. Stay hydrated and stay cool.
