Heat related headlines are already out in the middle of the country. Three main factors continue to line up which will bring highs into the mid to upper 90s Friday in the Stateline with triple digits not far to our west. First, the jet stream is retreating far north which will encapsulate the region in a dome of hot air. In addition, sinking motion associated with high pressure will act to compress our atmosphere. This two-fold phenomenon should increase temperatures while suppressing clouds. The lack of clouds will allow a strong early summer sun to enhance warming.
