You’ll be wanting to find a watering hole this week as temperatures continue to build into the low 90s and humidity remains high. As for now, we’ve already cracked the 9-0 mark and dew point temperatures are running in the upper 60s/low 70s. Factoring that together, the heat index is running mid-to-upper 90s.
Things don’t change much in the late summer months as high pressure and stagnant air sits overhead. Occasionally, a cold front will slip by and lower the heat and humidity briefly, but that’s about it. That’s what we have coming in this Thursday as a weak front looks to knock us down a few pegs. We’ll dip down into the low 80s Friday with our dewpoint temperatures dropping as well. That will make things *slightly* comfortable. It will be brief, however, as we climb back into the low 90s over the weekend. Great pool weather for a good stretch. We’re also keeping tabs on the wave of low pressure moving into the Gulf of Mexico. The NHC has a 70% chance of tropical development in the next 48 hours, meaning our second named storm of 2019 is becoming more likely.
