Heat advisory in effect for Saturday. Hottest along area beaches, here's John
Heat advisories or excessive heat warnings are impacting tens of millions of people throughout the deep South to the Mid-West. Feel-like temperatures will be up to 108° for those under the heat advisories. Those under the excessive heat warnings may see feel-like temperatures closer to 111° (or higher). These are conditions in the shade.
Yet, sunshine will be abundant.
Get some shade. If heading to the beach, definitely bring an umbrella. Backyard? Shady spot. Yard work? Shady and in the morning.
Saturday and Sunday will be similar. Some patchy morning fog, followed by super (hazy) sunny skies.
Sunrise temperatures may start in the mid-70s. The feel-like temperatures will already be in the low 80s. By lunch, both days, near 92° with feel-like temperatures around 103°. Temperatures will “peak” around 3-4 p.m. near 95°. Feel-like temperatures will peak around 105-110°.
The highest values will be along the coast as offshore (southwesterly) winds will dominate until after 3p.m. That means area beaches will see some of the worst in terms heat and humidity (all the more reason to be under an umbrella).
Storms will be hit and miss on Saturday. Just a few “pulse” storms between 3-7 p.m.
Sunday will be similar, but there will be more storms and possibly later into the evening or night.
Next week the threat of rain really jumps back up.
So, don’t put the umbrellas away.
