After moderate and free flowing Sea Breezes from Thursday, June 11th to Saturday, June 13, Appalachian High pressure has built to the west and is working with Atlantic High pressure to place a large heat trapping dome over the SE Region.  Here is some perspective in a YouTube video explaining why this happens and how it affects winds along the coast.

The video was prepared for the “Chucktown Wind Report” on Facebook, but applies pretty much from GA up to Southeast NC.

We might get a break by a couple of degrees by Wednesday/Thursday as troughing is allowed to develop and air is able to lift; however, humidity levels would rise as a result to keep a higher heat index.

Stay cool!
