Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels are holding in the YELLOW range Monday afternoon as skies remain mostly sunny and hot, humid air continues to slide through the region. More heat is in store for Tuesday as highs reach into the upper 90s as winds come out of the northwest. There is also a front sinking down from the north which could start to spark a few more afternoon thunderstorms in the area. Expect AQI levels to hold in the mid YELLOW range Tuesday. The front will creep closer for Wednesday and help trigger even more thunderstorms in the area as AQI levels improve a little more. This high pressure area has been more July and August-like than our typical June air mass and while there is not a big change in store over the next couple days, an upper level low will try and push into the nation's mid-section and attempt to alleviate some of this intense heat by Friday.
