Doug Harlow Career
After completion of his degree at Penn State, he went back north to Syracuse to work for WIXT and it was there that he finally witnessed a true Upstate New York winter. Unfortunately, however, it continued to snow into April! From Syracuse, he traveled south to Binghamton where for almost three years he was morning meteorologist for WIVT. More cold temperatures and snowfall there were followed by record river-flooding on three separate occasions, the most recent in June of 2006 where the apartment house next to mine was evacuated.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — We’ve had our fair share of hot days this season, with a heat index last week peaking around 98 degrees at the airport measurement sites and around or just above 100 in downtown spots.
However, all signs are pointing to an even hotter spell arriving by the end of this week. First, though, the remnants of Barry have to pass through the area.
We saw the outer fringes of Barry’s moisture produce some showers and storms late Monday afternoon across the Tri-State and a few more showers look to traverse the region into the overnight.
Tuesday may feature more mid-high clouds for a time, especially in the morning, but with those expected to thin out in the afternoon, we’ll likely see temperatures top out above 90 degrees once again in the afternoon. There are signs, thanks to southeast wind, that we may mix down some drier air which would keep the heat index mostly in the low to mid-90s, similar to Monday.
The low-pressure center that was Barry will track by to our north Wednesday with the greatest coverage to showers and storms this week. Even then it won’t be a washout but some localized downpours will move through in a soupy tropical air mass. With added cloud cover temperatures should be held below 90.
Once that low departs, a strong ridge building over the Rockies will expand to the east coast by Friday, allowing the hottest air of Summer to set up over the Ohio Valley. Temperatures are likely to reach 95 or higher at least Friday and Saturday (and possibly Sunday), but that’s only part of the problem. Dewpoints are likely to be in the 70s by then, which means a heat index above 100 and likely around 105.
Urban areas could reach 110 degrees for the heat index. That means heat advisories and even excessive heat warnings are likely to make an appearance by the end of the week. You’ll want to take it easy during this stretch and make sure to stay hydrated as this will be the hottest weather of Summer and at least the hottest stretch since the July 4 period last year.
Rain chances seem very low Friday and Saturday and only scattered Sunday before a cold front arrives Monday with a higher risk for storms but also the promise of a break in this latest heatwave by the middle of next week.
