Heat advisories posted for Wednesday

It was certainly hot earlier today but the breeze helped keep it somewhat tolerable. It's hot again tomorrow and with less wind and a little more humidity it will feel 95°F to 100°F in the afternoon with actual temperatures in the low to mid-90s. They'll be plenty of sunshine and the heat advisory will last into the early evening. Take it easy if you're going to be outside for any extended amount of time. Hot and humid weather continue Thursday along with the chance for an afternoon thunderstorm. The heat and moderate humidity will continue through the weekend.

What you need to know, currently.

The June 2022 Global Climate Report came out a few days ago.

The report said that the global surface temperature for June 2022, which was 0.87°C (1.57°F) above the 20th century average, was the sixth-highest for June, in the 143-year-long recorded history. This month was also 0.08°C (0.14°F) cooler than the warmest June on record, which was in 2019.

June had some very warm temperatures across the Northern Hemisphere with several places across Europe, the Middle East and northern Africa experiencing daily maximum temperatures over 35°C (95°F), with some places reaching 50°C (122°F) during the first week of the month. North America and Africa had their seventh and tenth-warmest June on record, respectively.

The extreme heat that suffocated much of Asia, and now Europe, led to both continents having their second-warmest recorded June as well.
