Tuesday Morning, June 19, 2018

High pressure continues to gain control of the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry's forecast; plan on our first significant stretch of hot weather this week.

Under a few clouds, temperatures have cooled into the 70s this morning. Humidity remains elevated. Temps warm into the 80s as early as 9 a.m. Plan on a temperature nearing 90° by noon. Humidity adds to the recipe – heat indices will be in the 90s late this morning.

High temperatures range from the mid to upper 80s at the beach to mid-90s along the I-95 corridor and, possibly, a few upper 90s further inland. Afternoon heat indices are forecast to top 100°.

Isolated showers and thundershowers may pop-up after lunch. Whatever rain develops remains isolated. You're lucky if you get some free water!

Temperatures become even hotter Wednesday and Thursday. High temperatures soar into the mid and upper 90s both afternoons. Heat indices between 105° and 110° are expected both afternoons.

A Heat Advisory may be issued by the National Weather Service.

Remain alert to heat expected the next several afternoons. Pay attention to how your body feels.

  • Avoid outdoor, strenuous, activity during the hottest time of day; 1 to 5 p.m.
  • Drink plenty of water, electrolytes
  • Find shade, cover skin with light-colored clothing

Tropical Update: An area of low pressure is spinning near the mid-Texas coast this morning. Bands of heavy rain are increasing the risk of flooding across the Lone Star State and portions of Louisiana. This storminess has a very low, near-zero, chance of developing into a tropical system. No other areas of storminess are being monitored for tropical development.

Best,

Cutter
