HOTTEST WEEKEND OF THE SUMMER ON TAP

As temperatures soar over the next few days, look for the hottest weekend so far this year.

TEMPERATURES: Temperatures over the weekend will hit the highest readings seen so far this weekend. Highs will run anywhere from 95 to near 100 in and around Atlanta, especially to the south and east. Combined with the humidity it will feel more like 100-105. Make sure to drink lots of water and sty hydrated in this type of heat. After all it’s the weekend and many of us will be outside so it makes it all the more important. By next week highs will drop back to seasonal norms with reading generally in the upper 80s.

T-STORMS: Strong high pressure building aloft will not only aid in heating up the atmosphere, but it will also suppress the ability for t-storms to form. Therefore except for a stray t-shower don’t look for much in the way of organized t-showers this weekend.

TROPICS: The system that everyone has been watching in the Atlantic, Invest 96L, is on track to strengthen and possible become a TD as it makes its way into the Caribbean. The new long range forecast model data suggests that the system will track toward the Bahamas by Monday. On that path it will struggle to stay alive after it encounters Hispaniola, so we will wait and see. Earlier in the week the models suggested a stronger system in the Gulf of Mexico. Quite a difference wouldn’t you say? That is why putting faith in long range models is not a smart thing to do.
