Dangerous Heat Continues

Tuesday features plenty of hot sun, clouds at times, and a few mid to late afternoon showers and storms, especially in the east coast metro area.  A heat advisory is in place until Wednesday evening.  (While temperatures will drop a little in the nighttime hours, our “feels like” temperatures will remain uncomfortable.)  Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid-90s — so stay hydrated and out of the sun as much as possible.

Friday will be mostly sunny and hot with afternoon showers and storms.  Friday’s highs will be mostly in the mid-90s.

Saturday’s forecast calls for a mix of hot sun, clouds, showers, and storms.  Highs on Saturday will be mostly in the mid-90s again.

In the tropics, we’re watching a low that’s forming several hundred miles east-northeast of Bermuda.  The National Hurricane Center gives this feature a medium chance of developing into a subtropical or tropical depression as it moves eastward during the next several days.  But by the weekend, it will move northward into cooler waters — while remaining in the middle of the Atlantic.
