The Summer Heat Wave Continues
Hot and humid conditions continue today and for the rest of the week. Above average normal temperatures (92 Normal High/ 73 Normal Low) have become the new normal for our area,unfortunately. The only relief will come in possible late afternoon thunderstorms, which a couple storms could become strong. The coverage of rain showers and thunderstorms will be less than yesterday. Heat index values will also continue to top out near 103 in the afternoon. Temperatures are not the only thing heating up, as the tropics are really heating up with one tropical depression in the open Atlantic and another tropical wave approaching the Gulf of Mexico. We’re not expecting any major effects from either tropical system in the near future.
