Amble’s Ramble

Here come the heat everyone. This coming week will be one of the hottest in 2016 as temperatures on Tuesday climb easily into the lower to middle 90s. The Dew Point temperature could reach 75 degrees ( according to the GFS model ) which is extremely high. Even the more conservative NAM has Dew Points in the lower 70s which is still very high.

It’s the combination of the high temperatures and high moisture content in the air which is more accurately measured using Dew Point temperatures. It’s really just a cool way of saying it’s going to be hot and humid.

Here’s a scale of what Tuesday will feel like:

Tuesday is just the beginning. Hot weather will continue for the rest of the week with highs by Friday flirting with 100 degrees. The days may not be quite as sticky by the end of the week but you’ll know the heat is still there. There is an Excessive Heat Warning in effect until Friday at 7:00 PM. Yes, FRIDAY!

As you can see the Kansas City area is sharing the misery with quite a few folks in the Midwest. If you’re looking to escape the heat you’d better head indoors or grab a plane ticket to Canada!
