Robert posted on Facebook today. Heat wave looks to last at least 10 days. He's talking about temps approaching 100 from N Florida to Virginia. I hate these death ridges.

Take it to the bank! Models can nail a heatwave weeks in advance. It'll verify 100%.

Boy, REALLY hope TWC is overdoing this heat for late next week, mid 90s gonna be torture!:weep:

Already starting off with a bang! Ridge breeds drought and drought strengthens ridge! I think we already know how this ends. Record shattering heat this summer will be the headlines.

Wow, I didn't know there was a daily forecast that goes all the way to Labor Day. That's September..... I know, you meant Memorial Day

Finally getting a good dry stretch and some warmth! The lakes here are still an icebox.

Let's switch places then. Most areas east of the mountains are running quite dry this year, and it's been very warm too.

Hard to believe the heat we are looking at for May this weekend! GSP has not hit 90 yet but will do so easily on Friday if not before. GSP has not been higher than 96 since July 25th 2016, but could well surpass that ere the month is out! Not looking forward to this AT ALL! 

I remember one year back in the mid 90s when a May heat wave reached the mid 90s and ended up being the hottest weather all summer. Would be nice if that happened again here, but something tells me this is gonna be another 2016, 2012, 1993 type of summer.:thumbsdown: :weep:

Yeah something tells me 2019 will even blow those years away. Maybe I should learn to love heat, if that's even possible.

Honestly, if we could just get some storms. But mega ridge for weeks. At least the Midwest get's the occasional Derecho in this kind of pattern

Summer officially started Monday. That's when I saw the first lightning bug of the year. 

We've had them around here since early April.

Well, guess we are in the boring part of the year with regards to weather here. Looking forward to going to the beach, lake, and amusement parks this summer. But have to hang out at the midwest forum to get my severe weather fix.

Brad's touting the Death Ridge.

"This (Wednesday) will be the coolest day we're going to see for a long time and I'm not kidding," said chief meteorologist Brad Panovich. "Probably the coolest day we see until Autumn."

Good writeup on the upcoming heat.
