Highs Monday ran 87-93 once again over the viewing area with heat indices peaking at 91-105.
"Ring of Fire" complexes of storms will track from North Dakota to Minnesota to Ohio today-Thursday.
The tail ends of these complexes or their outflow boundaries will produce a few to some storms here late today, at any point Wednesday & again Thursday. I went for coverage of 35%.
Any storms may have some severe weather risk. Main threat would be wind
When any storms pass they will cool us off, otherwise, it looks like highs 92-97 with heat indices 101-115 with a southwest wind.
Overnight lows will run near 70 to the mid 70s.
Some near surface smoke will be around from northeastern Minnesota to northwestern Ontario wildfires. This, with the high pollen, will knock ourair quality down.
A few to some storms will help cleanse it at times, however.
Corridor of severe storm complexes will line up from the Dakotas to Michigan & Ontario Friday.
We may see a few storms (with isolated severe risk) pop on outflow boundary laid up in our northern counties, otherwise it looks partly cloudy with 90s & heat indices +100 with a south wind.
Severe weather with supercells & clusters of supercells with tornado, hail & wind risk will occur North Dakota to northern Minnesota & Ontario Saturday.
Here, other than a passing isolated shower/storms coming up from the south Saturday, we just look to see 90s, heat indices in the 100s & south to southwest winds.
A few storms are possible Sunday & Monday with 90 to the 90s with heat indices around 100 to the 100s. Surface cold front should pass Tuesday morning, August 31 with some storms.
Cooler weather should follow!
Late Tuesday, August 31-Thursday, September 2 looks very pleasant with north to northeast, then east winds with lower humidity & highs 78-83 with lows in the 50s finally!
Friday-Sunday looks to heat back up into the 80s to 90, but a few storms are possible later that Sunday, September 5 (the way it looks right now). However, current coverage looks pretty low.
We will need to monitor the eastern Gulf Coast & the East Coast for tropical storm/hurricane development, just in time for the Labor Day weekend.
