LONG TERM HEAT WAVE
Heat Wave #2 continues with today marked as Day 5 as highs climbed to 105 degrees. High pressure will move onshore over the next couple of days and that will keep things well above normal with triple digits in the South Valley and low 90s in the mountains with winds kicking up to 10-20 mph. Monsoon moisture is expected to stay east of the area until Wednesday.
By the middle of the week, there could be enough energy in the atmosphere to generate some thunderstorms across our desert and mountain areas. For now, I left in a 20% chance for the deserts and Kern Valley and 10% in our mountains by Wednesday with a 10% chance for Thursday. Valley locations will stay dry, but humidity levels will start to go up so with heat and high humidity levels, things will start to feel uncomfortable.
Heat Wave #2 is expected to be a long one with triple digits on the menu for the next 7-10 days.Meteorologist KAHTIA HALL - July 15, 2018 6:49 PM
