Episode Narrative Strong upper-level high pressure built over the region during the 22nd. Surface high pressure over the Atlantic Ocean caused moist air to move into the region from the south. Strong subsidence underneath the upper-level high caused extremely hot conditions with air temperatures over 100 degrees. The combination of the heat and high humidity caused heat indices to soar over 115 degrees. The worst conditions were east of the Blue Ridge Mountains where the humidity was highest.
Event Narrative Heat indices were estimated to be over 110 degrees based on observations nearby.
