Post-Dorian heat wave for the weekend

/ September 6, 2019 at 12:53 PM

An abnormally strong ridge of high pressure is going to build in for the weekend, keeping rain chances relatively low and temperatures rather high for early September. In fact, the record high of 95° for Saturday is forecast to be at least tied. By Sunday, more humidity works its way in and heat indices may exceed 105°. Aside from an isolated afternoon thunderstorm, relief from the heat looks unlikely. Keep this in mind if you or someone you know remains without power — they’re going to want some air conditioning this weekend!

Forecast for Thursday, February 7. First 80°+ day of the year!

The warmest day of #FakeSpring is upon us, with highs expected to top out in the low 80s away from the beaches, which will remain much cooler under the influence of water temperatures in the 50s. The NWS forecast high of 81° would be a new record for the date.
