Things are getting pretty heated
A heat dome is building over the southern Plains as much of Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Missouri are expecting triple-digit temperatures for the end of the week. While the heat will worsen dry conditions in the West, it will interact with humid conditions in the Northeastern to continue bringing severe thunderstorms to the Central and Eastern US. Hail the size of golf balls and wind gusts up to 90 mph have already been reported, as we experience the trailing effects of the recent derecho that swept through South Dakota and Iowa earlier this week.
The combination of heat and humidity can be deadly, especially at this time of year. Try to stay indoors in cool places when possible. If you have the time, consider dropping by the beach to catch some of that refreshing sea breeze!
