Above Normal Heat and Humidity This Week will Drive Strong Cooling Demand in the Nation’s Interior and Northwest. Severe Storms will Sweep from the Upper Midwest to the Mid-Atlantic with Power Outages Leading to Increased Service Calls.

 

THIS WEEK

  • The week ahead will feel very much like mid-summer for much of the interior U.S. back into the Pacific Northwest. Daytime highs are not expected to be extreme, generally in the upper 80s to mid 90s. However, high humidity levels will keep morning temperatures elevated in the 70s and low 80s and will cause ‘feels like’ readings in the afternoon to top 100°F for many.
  • Demand for air conditioners, fans, dehumidifiers and other cooling categories will be robust in these locations.
  • In addition, anticipate the increased potential for severe storms (primarily with high winds and large hail) to occur in a corridor from the Upper Midwest into the Mid-Atlantic states. Any resultant power outages will lead to increased service calls.

WHAT IS WEATHER-DRIVEN DEMAND (WDD)?
Weather-Driven Demand is the measured impact of weather — and weather alone — expressed as a percentage change from last year or normal, either favorable (positive) or unfavorable (negative).
