Hot weather still on track

While we are enjoying some wonderful temperatures and very low humidity today, things are still looking to change within the next 48 hours. A dome of hot air over the southern states will get a boost northward as the jet stream takes a summer vacation into southern Canada. A large ridge will then bring hot weather to the Stateline. Highs near 90 Thursday and likely into the middle 90s Friday look to be highly probable. As new model runs come in, some suggestions of a continuation of this heat into the rest of the holiday weekend are becoming more and more valid.

Along with the heat, there will be a large amount of available moisture which will do two interesting things to the forecast. First, it will act to slightly temper the heating potential in our atmosphere as more moisture heats slower and less efficiently. Secondly, as temperatures are able to make it above 90, combining high humidity will mean heat index values near 100 Friday.
