July 11: Heat Continues to Build, Daily Links


Our mid-July heat wave continues today and tomorrow, with high temperatures reaching the mid 90s this afternoon and the low to mid 90s again on Wednesday:

Humidity levels will still be tolerable today, but the mugginess will be noticeably higher on Wednesday — so while temperatures tomorrow will be similar or even a degree or two cooler, the heat index (the “feels like” temperature) will be higher, reaching the upper 90s:

Just apply the usual common-sense advice: stay hydrated, find some air conditioning (or at least some shade) whenever you can, and generally take it slow outside.

The increase in humidity also means a slight chance of afternoon storms tomorrow and Thursday…Futurecast shows some radar freckles tomorrow, but nothing widespread:

The better storm chances will shape up late this week, especially Friday and Friday night, but even then it doesn’t look like a complete washout:

Rain chances will diminish over the weekend — the data has been trending drier for Saturday, but there’s still enough uncertainty to warrant a decent rain chance, mainly early in the day.  Temperatures will still top out around 90° through the weekend and into early next week.



A short list of nerdy stuff today, but some good stuff nonetheless…
