'Feels-like' temperature could reach 100 degrees

Get ready for the heat.

The "feels like" temperature Monday and Tuesday could reach or exceed 100 degrees, forecasters say.

"Typical for the month of June," said Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker.

The culprit is humidity, essentially held in place by a dome of high pressure over the region, said Michael Lewis, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Ruskin.

The conditions are likely to persist all week.

The high temperature today probably won't reach the record for the date, 96 degrees, set in 2009 at Tampa International Airport.

But highs on Monday and Tuesday are expected to reach the low 90s over much of the region and drop slightly later in the week.

Normal highs in mid to late June are about 90 degrees during the day and 75 overnight.

Forecasters predict a chance of afternoon showers through the week.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.
