HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS NEAR HEAT ADVISORY CRITERIA ARE EXPECTED ACROSS MOST OF NORTH TEXAS EARLY NEXT WEEK.
Didn’t someone recently mention the distinct possibility of a heat advisory? Oh, that would be me, to wit:
Our temperatures seem poised to dance about the century mark with overnight lows in the “heat advisory” area. For anyone counting, that’s a forecast heat index of 105°F (41°C) but less than 115°F (46°C) for less than 3 hours per day, or nighttime lows above 80°F (27°C) for 2 consecutive days. We might just hit one or both requirements beginning this weekend and continuing through next week.
Of course, it might actually be worse than a heat index. Only time will tell. We have forecast highs at 99°F (37°C) and forecast lows at 79°F (26°C). Add to that this perpetual blanket of heavy moisture that seems intent to rest upon us for aye and anon… and you come up with what we expected to have at least two months ago, only worse. The high dewpoints are the unusual piece of this puzzle, so the hot temperatures finally arriving could well be much worse than that to which we’re accustomed. Not much worse, but worse nonetheless.
Now that my prediction is confirmed, let’s see just how bad this late summer can be.
