Extreme Heatwave Expected; Record Temperatures Being Tested; The Ohio Valley; June 16th – 21st

Across the Ohio Valley:

A high-pressure setup is expected to bring an extreme heatwave across the Ohio Valley throughout the work week combined with humid muggy conditions. Refer to the detailed forecast for further specifics below.

Overall Forecast:

An extreme heat wave is expected as a surface high-pressure system builds across most of the eastern U.S. What will make it feel even worse is the combination of hot and humid air masses for most of next week. High temperatures are anticipated to be near or even break records during this heat wave. Temperatures are expected to reach near 100 with locally higher, while heat indexes peaking those numbers across the Ohio Valley. This heatwave is expected to persist from Monday to Wednesday at least and continue through the end of the workweek. Meanwhile, warm overnight temperatures will provide no relief, remaining in the mid-70s and creating a dangerous scenario, especially for those without adequate cooling solutions.

Main impact: excessive heat, high heat index, muggy conditions and low temperature recovery.
