Another Heat Wave Next Week

High temperatures will return to the upper 90s after a nice break this week.

Get ready for another surge of extremely hot weather next week.  We have enjoyed pleasant conditions over the past few days with highs near 80° and lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.  The high pressure responsible for the cooling will also be the main feature as temperatures warm up.  Winds will return to the southwest as the high pressure shifts offshore late Sunday into the first half of next week.  Winds will return to the southwest and bring unseasonable heat into the area.  We should see highs into the middle 90s Monday and upper 90s during the middle of the week.  Relative humidity levels will increase as well causing the heat index to reach over 100° by Monday.  In fact, we could see a few days with heat indices in excess of 105°.  Chances for rain look rather slim through early next week.  The next chance for any cooling showers will most likely come after Wednesday.  The beaches and mountains will be the only places to be other than sitting by the air conditioner.  Temperatures along the immediate coast should be about 5° to 8° cooler during the afternoons.
