What is a Rex Block and How is it Impacting Us?

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Our Thursday will shape up to be very similar to Wednesday. The day will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Highs again will be in the mid 80s. However, it's still going to be humid so heat index values later this afternoon and evening will be close to 90.

The reason our weather has been so stagnant over the past few day is because a weak type of Rex Block has set up over the east coast. This is when a high pressure system and low pressure system set up over an area in a way that prevents other weather systems from moving through.

This Rex block will allow us to say dry for Friday. We'll be mostly sunny to partly cloudy again. Highs will be in the mid 80s with heat indices in the low 90s.
