Today’s air is full of lingering humidity as the week begins. This heat is due to another stalled front sitting just to our west allowing for an unobstructed southwesterly flow. This from across the Rockies and across the plains into the interior South and the Mississippi Valley with summer-like levels of humidity filling the air. This is just what we need from a weather perspective, right after a relatively cool first week of May.
With this in mind let’s begin our weekend forecast.
– KSNER Meteorologist Charlie Brennan
The main feature looks to be very warm to hot conditions across North and South Texas, and much of the plains as well.
By late weekend areas of showers and thunderstorms will gradually push across the west coast. Although, this should be widespread across the region with the exception of the I-80 corridor from Memphis to New Orleans.
The biggest impacts for parts of the Southeastern U.S. however, will be from the heat and humidity. On Monday we could see over 100°F with the only let-up being in the late afternoon temperatures. By Tuesday and Wednesday of this coming week, in fact, this area could experience temperatures in the middle 90s with very dangerous heat index values in the low triple digits.
