Heat Dome Roasts US With Temps Forecast To Approach 100°F

A massive heat dome is set to intensify this weekend, expected to roast hundreds of millions of Americans with temperatures in some regions approaching 95-100°F.

A portion of the same weather system, a large area of high pressure, that has been building and broiling the south-central United States much of this week will poke northeastward in the coming days.

Actual temperatures are forecast to rise well into the 90s F from portions of Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York state, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, West Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia.

A few locations over the mid-Atlantic and Ohio Valley can reach or exceed 100 degrees for a couple of hours in the afternoon on Sunday and Monday. – Accuweather 

Meteorologist Ryan Maue tweeted, “the Lower 48 average high temperature will be over 90°F 🌡️ 265 million population 90°+” on Saturday.

The National Weather Service warns heat indices over 100°F will be found in the Midwest through the weekend.

The National Integrated Drought Information System warns “outside of the Southeast, every region of the USA has some drought.” 

Here’s Refinitiv weather analyst Ed Whalen’s US weather forecast for the next 1-5 days, 6-10 days, and 11-15 days. The report is specially tailored for natural gas traders. 

While approximately 90% of households have air conditioning, that doesn’t necessarily mean they can afford it this year as a virus-induced recession, coupled with a fiscal cliff is badly pressuring household finances. Some people might have to wait until the second round of Trump checks arrive before they lower their thermostats below 68°F.
