Sunny, Hot and Very Humid August 12th

Much like yesterday, the heat together with the high humidity will make it feel intolerable at times. Partly sunny, very warm and humid. Scattered showers and thunderstorms around the area again today. Any storm will be capable of producing torrential downpours, gusty winds and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning.

-This is all due to a Bermuda high sitting off the eastern US coast near the Carolines. The return flow is Southwesterly which is helping to move in warm, very humid air from the SE states and Gulf of Mexico into our area. Sea-surface temperatures off the SE coastline and the gulf of mexico are in the lower to mid 80’s. This high isn’t forecasted to move much over the next several days.

**Highs tomorrow will approach 100 with high humidity**
