Hot Days Ahead… Monday Forecast Update -4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Monday afternoon! At 5:34pm this afternoon, we officially begin Summer! This will be the longest day of the year in terms of daylight hours. After this point, days will slowly start getting shorter and shorter as we approach Fall. Humidity isn’t all that bad today, with lower dewpoints, so the air temperatures are bearable, especially in the shade. That trend will change this week, as dewpoints return into the 70s by late week and this weekend.

Expect temperatures to drop into the middle to upper 60s overnight, under a clear sky. We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine Tuesday through Friday, as a surface high and upper air high keeps our area very dry and quiet. As the upper air heat bubble increases by mid to late week, expect temperatures to warm into the middle 90s. Heat index will top 100 as early as Friday, due to the higher dewpoints. Lows will also modify into the 70s.

Expect a small chance of a few scattered weekend storms, with increasing rain chances by early next week.

Tropical Storm Danielle formed this morning in the extreme southwest Gulf of Mexico. This storm has winds at 45mph and is making landfall now in central Mexico. This will not impact the US…
