National Weather Outlook
Northeast (ME, VT, NH, PA, NY, NJ, CT, MA, RI, MD, NJ): Hotter temperatures, increasing humidity, and drier than average conditions across the entire region going into July. Mostly sunny with highs in the upper and 80’s and 90’s the entire weekend through the week. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the week. The combination of heat and high levels of humidity will result in dangerous heat index values at times with heat index values pushing as high as 105-110 across parts of the region during the hottest times of the day.
Southeast/mid-Atlantic (KY, WV, VA, TN, NC, SC, AR, LA, MS, AL, GA, FL): Heat and high levels of humidity will plague the region through the week with high temperatures pushing well into the 90’s across most locations. The combination of heat and humidity will result in dangerous heat index values as high as 105-110 (perhaps locally higher) during the hottest times of the day. Isolated daily thunderstorms will be possible with torrential downpours which could result in pockets of flash flooding. Thunderstorms will be a bit more scattered across the southeastern United States.
Midwest/Ohio Valley (ND, SD, NE, KS, MN, IA, MO, WI, MI, IL, IN, OH): Hot and humid through the week with high temperatures across the Great Plains soaring well into the 90’s and close to 100 in spots. Expect high temperatures across the upper Midwest and Ohio Valley to push into the 90’s. Heat index values across the central Plains and Ohio Valley will approach and at times exceed 100-105. Isolated daily thunderstorms possible as well. A higher likelihood exists across the northern Plains for more in the way of widespread thunderstorms.
South/Southwest (OK, TX, AZ, NM): Hot and humid through the week across TX and OK where heat index values will approach 100-105 in many locations with a few locations reaching 105-110+. Hot and dry conditions persist across AZ and NM. While daily isolated thunderstorm activity is possible across TX and OK a better chance may exist in the Wednesday/Thursday time frame.
Intermountain West (MT, WY, ID, NV, UT, CO): Warm-to-hot and fairly dry across the region through the week with the greatest thunderstorm potential across MT, ID, and CO on Tuesday and Wednesday. It will become breezy/windy across much of the region as well both Tuesday and Wednesday.
Pacific (WA, OR, CA): Dry weather across CA through the week with a substantial warming trend across central and southern CA for the end of the week. Some showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible across WA and OR throughout the course of the week.
