Today will be the last day of the heatwave affecting central Pennsylvania among other places. It’s been hot here but not record breaking with highs in the low to mid 90’s each day. The humidity hasn’t seemed to be as bad as it could have been either but that’s not really a bad thing. My mom who lives near northeast Philadelphia said her car thermometer read 108. That seems a bit high but that area always seemed to run hotter in the summer.
We had a great time attending the GOTCHA event today. There were tons of prizes, including a very special Team Alamo coin. I’m very disappointed to not win that. It was hot and humid today.. It’s never a good thing when you wake up to thick fog and temperatures in the 70’s in summer. Topped out with highs in the low to mid 90s with dewpoints near 80. Not fun.
Today we should get some nice thunderstorms. There’s a sweet looking cell out near Pittsburgh this morning. It will be interesting to watch how that complex of storms moves across the state and holds together. It’s a shame that it will probably miss us to the south but it’s worth it to not have the crazy humidity we had yesterday. The SPC moved the slight risk of severe thunderstorms south today.
