" I fell into a burning ring of fire...". Ok I'll stop humming Johnny Cash. But then again he may appreciate all the people that love his song. But in weather terms, "ring of fire" refers to thunderstorms that develop around the periphery of a high pressure system. A lot of times these storms can be called "ridge riders" because they ride the jet stream over the ridge of high pressure. It appears we'll be seeing a similar pattern this week, as a "Bermuda high" develops off the east coast. This usually means two things for the east coast. Hot and humid weather, and showers and thunderstorms on a regular basis. A "Bermuda High" can sometimes bring the hottest weather of the summer. By the end of the week, we could be looking at temperatures in the mid 90s with heat indexes over 100 degrees. So what has been a "below average" summer so far, will not be feeling like it this week.
