The Heat Waves: A Primer

The Heat Waves: A Primer

The summer of 2022 is shaping up to be a very warm one. The heat wave is expected to intensify in the next few months, with above-normal temperatures likely across the lower 48 states.

  • Heat waves begin when high pressure in the atmosphere moves in and pushes warm air toward the ground.
  • The air warms up further as it is compressed, and we begin to feel a lot hotter.
  • A heat wave parks itself over an area for several days or longer.

Heat Domes

Heat Domes

As the ground warms, it loses moisture, which makes it easier to heat even more.

In the drought-ridden West, there is often plenty of heat for the high-pressure system to trap.

The trapped heat continues to warm, the system acts like a lid on a pot - earning the name "heat dome"

Last summer in the West, high pressure trapped heat led to triple-digit temperatures that killed hundreds.

To help reduce demand, consider raising the thermostat by a few degrees and closing window shades and blinds.

Avoid using large appliances like ovens, washing machines and dryers during the hottest part of the day, and turn off all lights and electronic devices not in use.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
