Heat Index

Blog: Weekend Heat, Little Rain, and Darby Threatens Hawaii

The heat is on for the Tidewater Area this weekend! An Upper Level Ridge of High Pressure that dominated the center of the country this week (basically serving as a Heat dome) is shifting east towards us. Therefore, we will tap into some unseasonably warm air. Highs this entire weekend will reach the mid 90s (average highs should be in the upper 80s).  Couple the high heat with high dew points (because of the plethora of low level moisture in the air)…and this will lead to heat index values climbing back above 100 degrees each afternoon.   [caption id=”attachment_343249″ align=”alignnone”…
