Saturday: Summer Heat Continues!

It has been quite hot this Thursday & Friday, but this summer heat will not end here! some spots will qualify as having a heat wave as the heat continues into Saturday. A heat wave is defined as three or more consecutive days of 90° or better. Many areas across the area have gotten at or above 90° or better both Thursday & Friday. These same areas could hit 90° or more for Saturday, as well.

Here are the NAM modeled temperatures and dew points for Saturday compared to the National Weather Service temperature map for Saturday, June 13.

So the heat will  continue to start the weekend, but things should get better for Sunday. Although the NAM predicts dew points in the 60s, which is sticky, temperatures should be lower in the low to mid 80s rather than up to the low 90s.

Stay cool!
