Good Monday morning!

The weekend was hot, but it was not humid.

The humidity has moved back into the state and today you will notice the muggy air once again.

The muggy and hot weather will be accompanied by a thunderstorm or two today and again on Tuesday.

Temperatures will reach 90-degrees for the first three days of this week before a more comfortable stretch of weather moves in for the weekend.

We’ve not hit 90-degrees for 3 consecutive days, so we are now officially in a heat wave.

The heat wave will last for a few more days, peaking on Wednesday with temperatures reaching the middle to upper 90’s along with high humidity.

The combination of the heat and humidity will make it feel like it is 100 to 104 degrees outside on Wednesday afternoon.

Because of these expected high heat index readings, an Excessive Heat Watch is in effect from Tuesday afternoon thru Wednesday at 9 PM.

The latter part of the week will be more comfortable with lower humidity and slightly cooler temperatures, which should last through the weekend.

Have a great day!

Ken
