7/27 - 9am - It's Hot, But Not Here!

Phoenix, Arizona is under an Excessive Heat Warning today, with an expected high of 113 degrees. Tonight's low will be 89 degrees and the forecast for tomorrow calls for a high of around 114 degrees. Here's what the Phoenix National Weather Service office has to say:
TEMPERATURES RANGING 5 TO 8 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL ARE EXPECTED DURING THIS PERIOD. DAYTIME HIGHS OVER THE LOWER DESERTS WILL RANGE FROM 110 TO 117 DEGREES TODAY AND TUESDAY. ADDITIONALLY...TEMPERATURES ARE NOT EXPECTED TO COOL OFF OVERNIGHT...

That's hot weather no matter where you're from!

The jet stream may be putting Phoenix under a nice warm ridge right now, but it continues to put Louisville inside a trough with much cooler weather. We may reach 90 tomorrow for the first time this month tomorrow, but if we don't then we will continue the record-breaking cool weather around here. Here's a great link that the NWS in Louisville posted about our cool weather... click here.

Cooler weather continues in Louisville after Tuesday, with a daily storm chance for the rest of the week.

It's also excessively hot in the interior PacNW. Portland has been baking with 100+ degree heat. Yesterday it was 106 and they're expecting 107 today before the heat begins to break heading into the weekend. Meanwhile, in Memphis, we set a record LOW maximum yesterday (79) as an anomalously cool July continues.
