From Hot and Dry to Hot and Humid
Low humidity to yield to usual stickiness

Jason Samenow @ 12:00 AM

A somewhat dry heat will affect the Metro today area before mugginess starts to move in tomorrow and builds early next week.


Forecast Confidence: High-Very HighMostly sunny and hot. A hot, dry airmass will be centered over the area today. Expect a ton of sunshine (wear sunscreen), low to moderate humidity and not much in the way of wind (SW at 5-10mph). It's a great day to be near the pool and a tolerable day to watch golf, if you're headed to Congressional for the AT&T National to watch Tiger Woods and company. Drink plenty of water if you're spending a lot of time outside. High temperatures should range from 90-95. Overnight, skies will be clear, with lows near 70 downtown and the mid 60s in the suburbs.


Forecast Confidence: HighMostly sunny, hot and somewhat humid. Other than a few puffy fair weather clouds, skies will be clear and the sun will be strong and hot. Humidity levels won't be oppressive, but in the moderate range. The mercury will likely soar to the mid 90s in most spots with a light southwesterly breeze that only provides modest relief.

Hurricane Center Storm

Things are getting ugly at the National Hurricane Center, as half of the staff there have now signed a petition calling for Director Bill Proenza's departure. But according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Proenza refuses to step down. Don't be surprised if the NOAA brass step in and pull the plug on Proenza whose support seems to erode each day. Jeff Masters' blog at Wunderground has lots of coverage on this if you're looking for more detail.

Did You Know...?

If you count the number of cricket chirps in 15 seconds, and add 40 that you get temperature at ground level in degrees Fahrenheit. (The temperature will be slightly warmer around your head.) The chirping of the crickets seems to be influenced by the air temperature -- the hotter it gets, the more they seem to want to "talk" about it. This little nugget is courtesy Charlie Wilson,, who obtained this important forecasting advice from senior meteorologist Stu Ostro of The Weather Channel.
