Heat indices 100°+ with record-breaking temperatures (9/18/22)

Record temperatures on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are currently all 94°. With the current forecast, we could be breaking each of those records with a new ones all set this year as highs rise into the upper 90s to start off next week. With winds out of the southwest and clear skies, temperatures will rise to the low and mid 90s on Monday afternoon to start a very hot week.

Dma Tomorrow High

Along with high temperatures, dewpoints will remain steady within the 70s, feeling steamy and humid. That will send heat indices past 100 degrees by noon, with expected maximum values to reach around 103° by Monday’s hours of peak heating.

Hour By Hour Heat Index Tomorrow

As for the humidity and calm winds forecasted for the beginning of the week, the conditions are going to call for a “high” Skeeter Meter through Tuesday. Dewpoints will be a touch cooler on Wednesday for now, but change in temperatures and humidity will not come until a cold front pushes our way. Right now, the timing of that cold front appears to be later in the day on Wednesday.

Skeeter Meter

A break from the heat will come by Thursday, but there is no precipitation expected to come with the passage of the front. It will be a dry week until another small chance for rain comes by Saturday. There’s chances to jump in the pool a few more times yet this year, if you still have access to one!
