Monday morning, and no break from the heat in the South. Temps today in Charleston, SC will feel like 115-117 when you add in the humidity. That is dangerously hot, so there is an excessive heat warning in the SC low country. Heat advisories are peppered throughout the South, and I’ll show you that on the big program. There will be storms and pockets of rain from SC all the way out to NV, but the severe weather threat is not high today.
At least the heat has broken in the NE and MW for the most part, but the flood warnings continue for parts of IA and outside of Chicago too. That’s from the weekend rains and dam burst, but at least there is no rain in the forecast until Wednesday afternoon.
Some more good news: no tropical storms or hurricanes to worry about today. Bonnie fizzled, there are some storms in the gulf that are not organized, but it looks pretty good in the tropics today.
Monsoonal rains are still around the four corners, but that is typical for late July.
The heat, that is slowly driving me bat-crazy, will hang around for the week, mainly in the south and west. See you out there on a sleepy Monday.
