Today Could Be The Hottest Day Of The Year
Thursday is predicted to be the hottest day of 2017, so far. The heat coupled with some action brewing in the tropics makes for a busy day in the StormTrack 12 Weather Center. Beware, today it's not just the heat, it's the humidity. With plenty of sunshine and dew points in the mid 70s it will feel like 100-105 degrees this afternoon. Actual temperatures will top out in the mid 90s. Limit your time outside and hydrate!
Tropical Depression 4 formed late last night in the central Atlantic Ocean. This system will continue to track off to the west and be north of the islands by early next week. If it can survive the hostile environment in the Atlantic it could make a run towards our coast by the middle of next week.
