Near Record Breaking Heat Smothers The Southeast

Near record breaking temperatures continue to hover over the majority of the southeastern region of the United States. In a few cases, such as in Atlanta, the high for the day was just one degree short of a record set in 1925. This weather is rather unusual in the area, which would typically expect highs in the 80s to mid 90s. However, for the second straight week, much of the area is experiencing temperatures reaching the mid 90s and as high as 100 degrees.

This can have dangerous results for those that work outside or participate in athletic activities. The football season is in full swing, meaning that extra precaution should be taken to ensure that athletes are not victims of this unusual heat wave. This includes taking frequent breaks, drinking plenty of water and avoiding intense physical activity during peak hours.

Another segment of the population that is at particular risk are the elderly. Be sure to check on those that may be vulnerable to the heat, such as neighbors that do not have air conditioning or existing health conditions. Those with breathing problems may also experience distress. Due to the fact that this large air mass is stagnant, it has and will continue to lead to increased ozone levels in the area. This can make breathing difficult for those with a variety of respiratory illnesses and diseases.

Fortunately, based on current projections a break in this weather pattern will likely be seen by the weekend. One projection is the possibility that a tropical storm will enter the deep south from the Gulf. Even if this storm does not enter the area, it is projected that a number of storms will develop in the area, helping to lower the temperatures to what would typically be expected during this time of year.
