Not sure why…but I think temps will actually be in the 100’s in the weeks to come, more than they want to admit. Thinking they don’t want to panic people so they forecast high nineties instead, so it looks more acceptable.

I agree
Kshb rarely throws the 100’s out there in a long ranger. They wait until it gets closer.

EOI was excellent this evening. Cool in the shade and bugs and humidity were not a factor.

” This is pretty phenomenal…reliable records go back to 1889…the only May 1st – July 7th timespan that was hotter was during the dustbowl days of 1934. Whenever you compare where we are now to the dustbowl days…you know we’re talking heat !”

So, with all the baking out of moisture and NO storms near us, why are the humidity and dew points going up ?
Is it because we still have a semblance of “green” grass and green foliage ?

The southerly flow. We are baking out thoroughly now, grass is going to go POOF this week. I expect a fully brown metro and most places actually by next weekend and I do fully expect 100s to start to replace the upper 90s we’ve been seeing.

So the southerly flow gives us the high dew points ?

Once again MT filling in for JL.
My hat’s off to him for that.
Sorry, but it’s like the 3rd weekend in the past month he has done this.
Don’t like his forecast though. He says 100 next weekend.
Gerard did not go there. Will see what Gary shows tomorrow night.

But, it’s not officially a drought until the trees and grass are brown or dead.
Ain’t that the right?

Doesn’t Heady down in Joplin says the new cycle starts showing up in July/ August?
