Public Information Statement

Statement as of 8:46 PM EDT on August 22, 2014


... Heat statistics so far for August 21-23, 2014 heat wave...

A heat wave began building across the southeast on Thursday,
August 21st. In our local area, widespread heat index values of
105 degrees or more were observed, with quite a few stations in
the 108-112 degree range. Some locations closer to the coast in
the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend, as well as some spots closer
to larger bodies of water in the interior Florida Panhandle,
observed heat index values between 113 and 117 degrees,
illustrating the influence warm water can have on surface
dewpoints, and therefore heat index.

On Friday, highs were once again in the upper 90s, and Tallahassee
reached the 100 degree mark. This was the second time in 2014 that
Tallahassee had a triple digit high, and it tied a record for the
date. Apalachicola also set a record high with 97. Overall, the
humidity and temperature levels on Friday were fairly similar to
Thursday, and that led to similar heat index values across the
area. More locations in the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend saw
heat index values of 113 or greater on Friday, with higher heat
indices compared to Thursday (on average) in both the Panama City
area and Tallahassee area.

This summary will be updated Saturday with additional information.
