    Historic ‘heat dome’ will bake the US for WEEKS on end with more than 265M Americans set to be hit

    Historic ‘heat dome’ will bake the US for WEEKS on end with more than 265 MILLION Americans set to be hit with scorching highs of between 90 and 120 degrees by early next week

    • The heatwave is already getting underway in the South, with some areas – including Las Vegas – forecast to peak above a scintillating 110 degrees 
    • Next week, the heat is set to move north and east, spreading 100-degree temperatures across the Ohio Valley and into the Mid-Atlantic
    • The National Weather Service is predicting that 75 or more record-high temperatures will either be matched or broken from Friday to Tuesday alone
    • Meteorologists are also predicting that Texas and the Southern Plains could even record their highest ever temperatures 
    • The historic ‘heat dome’ set to encapsulate more than 250 million Americans by next week
    • But among the record-breaking, the experts say the biggest story will be how long the heat wave actually lasts 

    A punishing and relentless heatwave is set to bake the US for weeks on end beginning this weekend until the end of July, with the historic ‘heat dome’ set to encapsulate more than 265 million Americans by next week.

    The heatwave is already getting underway in the South, with some areas – including Las Vegas and Phoenix – forecast to peak above a scintillating 110 degrees by Saturday.

    However, the surging summer heat will not just be limited to the south. Next week, the heat is set to move north and east, spreading 100-degree temperatures across the Ohio Valley and into the Mid-Atlantic, forecasts show.

    The National Weather Service is predicting that 75 or more record-high temperatures will either be matched or broken from Friday to Tuesday alone – with that number expected to grow significantly by the end of next week.

    Meteorologists are also predicting that Texas and the Southern Plains could even record their highest ever temperatures. But among the record-breaking, the experts say the biggest story is set to be how long the heat wave actually lasts.

    Jeff Masters, Ph.D., the founder of Weather Underground, told CBS NEWS what concerns him most is the effects that prolonged exposure to the heat may have on millions of Americans.

    ‘The heat wave will be very long-lived, lasting multiple weeks in some areas with only a few days of near-normal temperatures during that span. This will increase the odds of heat illness and heat-related deaths,’ Masters said.

    For example, Amarillo, Texas is set to experience temperatures of more than 100 degrees for the next 10 consecutive days, with some of those days nearing the 110-mark. The simmering temperatures are nearly 10 to 20 degrees above the area’s average high of 92 at this stage of the year.

    In the last few years, such massive outbreaks of heat have become commonly known as heat domes. A heat dome is essentially a sprawling area of high pressure, which brings hot and dry conditions for days-on-end.

    The bigger a heat dome grows, the hotter and longer-lasting a heatwave becomes – and experts predict the impending dome will be a very large one indeed.

    According to the forecasts, more than 80 percent of the country – or 265 million people – are set to sweat through temperatures of 90 or above next week, with another 45 million forced to endure temperatures in the triple-digit region.

    Excessive Heat Warnings have been issued by the National Weather for Southern California, southern Nevada and in the southern half of Arizona through Monday, warning of high risks of heat stroke, heat cramps or heat exhaustion

    The main bulk of the heat will build across the western lower Plains and the Southwest this weekend.

    The majority of Texas and Oklahoma will experience 100-degree temperatures or higher on Saturday, with the Red River Valley area of northwest Texas and southwest Oklahoma flirting around the 110 region.

    With humidity added as a factor, Dallas and Oklahoma City will feel like a sweltering 110 degrees, experts say.

    The Sunshine State will also live up to its moniker with temperatures continuing to reach the low-to-mid 90s through at least the next week.

    Excessive Heat Warnings have been issued by the National Weather for Southern California, southern Nevada and in the southern half of Arizona through Monday, warning of high risks of heat stroke, heat cramps or heat exhaustion.

    In Phoenix, Arizona, temperatures are tipped to reached a staggering 116 degrees or higher on Sunday, which would break a record set in the late 1800s. The all-time record in Phoenix is 122. In nearby Lake Havasu, Sunday temperatures may reach 120.

    Red flag warnings have also already been hoisted for parts of the Rockies and interior west for an elevated risk of wildfires.

    By the beginning of next week, experts say the heat will begin shifting east and north. By Tuesday, the mercury in Kansas, Oklahoma and north Texas is set to reach between 110 and 115. The temperatures will come close to the highest ever experienced in these areas – which vary from 112 to 120.

    While experts say the heat dome will be severe and long-lasting, it isn’t likely to surpass the staggering heatwaves recorded in the hottest period in US history, the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s. Nearly half of the all-time heat records were recorded in this period.

    Meteorologist Bob Henson told CBS he isn’t expecting a ‘raft of all-time or even monthly records, given the high bar of the 1930s and some recent years, like 2012. But I would expect at least a few, as well as some records for consecutive 90/95/100F temps.’

    Henson said July 2020 could end being one of the hottest on record, considering the ‘breadth and duration of the expected heat’.

    According to Henson, that’s because the heat forecast in the Southwest and in the Plains will not stay anchored in one place. A west-to-east steering flow will cause a piece of the swealtering heat to break away and steam east from St. Louis to Indianapolis and Pittsburgh, through to Washington, DC. Each of the cities will likely reach or surpass 100 degrees, Henson said.

    Projections show that the heat is unlikely to shift anytime soon. Forecasts show the heat is likely to continue into at least the end of July.
