Once again, temperatures and dew points are starting the day in the 60s and low 70s. It will be another hot and humid day as temps rise quickly this morning with highs climbing into the mid-80s to near 90° all across the region. It’s going to heat up quickly this morning with temps already pushing into the mid-80s by lunch and feeling closer to or slightly above 90° when you factor in the humidity. As a weak disturbance moves out of the region a weak area of high pressure will build in and the weekend is looking pretty good with that high in place. Saturday will be sunny and hot with highs in the low and mid-90s and humid. The chance for showers will return to the area Sunday afternoon and we’ll continue with the chance for showers each afternoon thru the first half of the new week.
It’s still that time of year that I need to remind folks to please, NEVER leave your kids or pets in the car. The interior of your car will heat up extremely quickly and reach dangerous, if not deadly, levels in a very short period of time. If you want to take the dog for a car ride than make it a dedicated ride for them, don’t stop for groceries or to pick something up. It only takes a few minutes for the temperature in your vehicle to reach those dangerous levels. If you have a small child be sure you double check the back seat when you get out.
