7/27 – Rob’s “Heat Continues” Tuesday Morning Forecast
Humid air, warm temperatures, and light winds will keep the current heat advisory posted through today. The main hope for cooling will be any thunderstorm development which will be embedded in a deep easterly flow. Afternoon seabreeze should provide a little relief for at least the coast. These conditions should play out each day much the same way with a slow increase in precip numbers each day.
Friday and beyond , the main concern during the extended period will continue to be the daily threat of thunderstorms, if any, and oppressive heat conditions. Medium range models show the upper high-pressure over Kansas/Oklahoma Thursday night and keep it there through Friday before weakening it as it drifts westward. This ridge will extend southeastward into our area and it looks like convection may be suppressed southward, at least for Friday and Saturday.
