7/26 – Rob Knight’s “Hot, Humid & Hazy” Monday Morning Forecast
The expansive mid to upper level high pressure area will remain just off to the north and west of the region which will keep the forecast area in a battle between very warm/hot low level temperatures and scattered diurnally driven convection again today. A subtle weak feature or two in the easterlies aloft should combine with the normal diurnally driven seabreeze and lake breeze boundaries to support isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly in the afternoon.
Until the rain and clouds increase this afternoon, the heat and humidity will cause oppressively hot conditions with heat index readings already reaching 105 or greater in many areas by 10 am and continuing in the 105 to around 110 degree range through the afternoon where it is not raining.
A Heat Advisory is once again in effect today.
The main forecasts concern during the extended period will continue to be the daily threat of thunderstorms, and oppressive heat conditions.
