Smoke, heat & humidity, some storms with severe risk & a cool-down ahead...

Highs yesterday & today reached 87-93 over the viewing area.  Heat indices were lower than yesterday on this Sunday at 91-104 over the area compared to 96-113 yesterday.

Yesterday saw multiple observation sites see dew points hit 80, including an 82 at Covington.

Monday-Wednesday looks dry & hot with northeast wind becoming southwest at 5-15 mph.

"Ring of Fire" storm complexes should stay well north & northeast of the area.

Highs will run 88-95 with heat indices peaking at 99-115. 

Smoke will begin to thicken back up Monday night-Tuesday & last through Wednesday.

Air quality will likely drop again by Tuesday-Wednesday to "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups".

Some patchy fog is possible each night with lows in the 60s to 70s.

Line of storms is possible Thursday afternoon-evening with some severe weather risk (wind) as surface cold front sags southward.

Front should move south of the viewing area Friday, bringing cooler, less humid air with highs 78-84.

Front will try to move back northward as a warm front into the area Saturday.  Meanwhile, a complex of storms will ride the front.  This could impact part of the viewing area with showers & storms.  The position of the front will determine how far north the severe weather risk gets.  It appears that areas southwest & south of our area have better severe risk than in our area.  However, we still need to monitor.

With front trying to move back north again, a few more showers & storms are possible Sunday.

Highs will run in the 80s as some higher humidity comes back in.

Nice, comfortable air should come in next Monday & Tuesday (August 2 & 3) with highs 76-81 & lows in the 50s.

We should heat up again with high humidity (highs upper 80s to 90s) after the cool-down.  Storms are possible at times (with off/on severe risk) August 8-10.

I still prefer bit above normal temperatures in August with slightly below normal rainfall.
