Today sunny with a high of 88 in the Highland area and  a moderate chance of rain and thunderstorms as the low pressure area approaches. Humidity will be up there 94% so a slightly uncomfortable day. Heat index will be floating around 92-95 degrees.

On July 4th humid with a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 7am. Partly sunny, with a high near 89. Heat index values as high as 99. South wind around 5 mph.

The night of July 4 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 74. South southwest wind around 5 mph.

A CLC (Checkout Line Congestion) Advisory is still in effect. There will be diving for the last bag of chips and fights breaking out over the last 12 pack of Bud Light. Please keep in mind all light beer tastes the same, like bottled water. Move on to the Coors Light or Miller Light, because really?!! It’s all carbonated tap water. But some will say “gotta have my Bud Light cuz anything else in not Merican”. Just move on, it’s not worth it. As always avoid eye contact, keep your cart well out of arm’s length and at all cost avoid conversations about politics. They will not listen anyway so why try. At best you will just get a quotation as in a word for word statement that they merely mindlessly repeating. Just avoid the areas containing high carb and high sugar items and you will be safe.

Heat wave continues for the eastern half of the nation… A slow moving cold front crossing the central Appalachians and the Northeast on Tuesday will be the impetus for areas of showers and thunderstorms from Pennsylvania to eastern New England. Across the Gulf Coast region, a low pressure trough will enhance showers and storms from southern Mississippi to southeast Texas, and some of these storms could produce locally heavy rain that may cause some flooding issues. Another area of heavy rain is likely across parts of the Dakotas, Iowa, and Minnesota with another low pressure system that will be crossing the northern plains. Dry conditions are expected to continue for most of the western U.S. from the Rockies westward.

The other thing making weather headlines through the middle of the week is the ongoing heat wave across the eastern U.S. An impressive upper level ridge is in place over the eastern U.S. and this is leading to widespread subsidence aloft. Heat advisories and some excessive heat warnings are in effect from central Virginia to eastern Maine. High temperatures in the 90s, combined with high dewpoints, is expected result in heat indices of 95 to 110 degrees for many areas. Overnight lows will also be quite sultry, especially in urban areas where readings could remain above 75 degrees all night. Some relief is expected later in the week as the weather pattern begins to change some.
