Upper level high pressure set up across the region to end the month of June and lasted through the 4th of July holiday week. This resulted in high temperatures routinely reaching into the low to mid 90s across the Quad State region. Oppressive humidity levels were in place much of the time as well, with dewpoints up into the mid to upper 70s on a daily basis. We even had some dewpoint temperatures hit 80 degrees, which is considered extremely oppressive and uncomfortable. This resulted in daily heat index readings of 100 or above for 7 straight days. The most intense heat and humidity occurred on July 5th when high temperatures reached into the mid to upper 90s and heat index readings soared to between 110 and 115 across much of the region.
