Update...
other than bumping temperatures and dew points upwards a notch to better
match observation...no other updates needed at this time. Will have to
keep an eye on heat indices this morning/early afternoon until
diurnal mixing and increasing winds begin to dip dew points out of the
upper 70s to near 80f. Many sites will approach 105f for heat
indices...especially along the coast. Can't rule out a stray
shower/thunderstorm near the coast and along northern/eastern counties
this afternoon given the abundant moisture in place...although
overall setup much less favorable than yesterday.
