After this morning’s lows of 60-66, today’s highs reached 83-88 after yesterday’s 83-89. The heat index of the viewing area peaked at 93. The arrival of thick clouds caused the temperature to drop slightly from 85-90.
We are in the midst of another massive heatwave in our region. Most of the hot ridges remain to the west and northwest of the viewing area.
Temperature extremes have occurred and will continue to occur from the western and northern plains to western Canada.
The highest temperature in Dakota this week is 104 degrees.
Even today, the highest was in Edmonton, northern Alberta, which soared to 88, and the lowest was just 60 in Yohin, Yukon.
Part of the LA Metro was 109 (Chino, CA), Fresno (Central California) was 111, Sacramento & Redding was 107, and Lewiston, Idaho was 102.
Death Valley hit a record high of 127 in September. It was impressive to reach that temperature after some record rainfall a few weeks ago.
So for us, we’re likely to see higher than normal temperatures (mostly 5 to 10 degrees above normal) over the next weekend, with showers/showers to showers/showers and a few showers/showers. over. /t’showers.
Conditions are humid with patchy fog at night and winds from the southeast and east to northeast during the day.
Meanwhile, the South will see flooding rains, especially from northern Florida to the Appalachian Mountains. Dangerous floods can occur there.
A large hurricane moves north, can make landfall in Baja California, and bring tropical downpours to Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.
Massive flooding is possible in that case, but it’s too early to really tell if the hurricane will follow that exact path.
However, it has a very high probability of becoming a hurricane, possibly a major hurricane.
With so many rifts out there, it tends to limit very large developments in the Gulf and Caribbean, but caution should be exercised in developing storms from tropical cyclones. Considering there is only one.
The trend is hot and humid from the 10th onwards until closer to the 15th.
A record heat wave could occur in the northwest of the region, with a very rare +100 Dakota drought and driest soils extending to parts of Minnesota, Nebraska, and Iowa. ……….Mid-September….
Some September record highs will be broken.
Temperatures up to the 90s are expected here.
While rainfall-induced flooding will continue in the south, some isolated storms (range 20-25%) are likely, and are expected to change from light winds to high winds and heat.
It looks like it will be pretty warm to hot around here until September 20th.
At that point, several upper troughs with surface cold fronts appear to swirl.
The heat, humidity, strong dynamics and shear forces here can cause a severe weather event or two.
Moisture from that hurricane in the eastern Pacific may also prove extra low-level moisture, enhancing storm action by increasing cape and air buoyancy.
