A  historic heat has been be upon us with daytime high temperatures above 110 degrees and records being shattered.

A stubborn low pressure system located in the Pacific Northwest gave way to a very strong ridge developing over the middle US. This ridge has since extended westward, putting us directly under the brunt of extreme heat. However, the worst of the heat seems to be over as we settle under the western edge. Perhaps more concerning will be a slight increase in our moisture and humidity as a result. Temperatures won’t quite be as high, but it will feel much warmer as a result with overnight lows staying in the 80’s and day time high temperatures still above 110, but not quite around record heat levels.
