The National Weather Service issued high temperature alerts to more than 115 million individuals across 16 U.S. states. Furthermore, the heat index in the South will reach up to 115 and the Northwest will experience a surge in heat waves.On August 13, the National Weather Service issued high temperature alerts for almost one-third or more than 115 million of the American population across 16 of the U.S. states. Reports say the heat index in nearly the entire region of the South is anticipated to reach up to 115. On the other hand, the Northwest is expected to experience a surge in heat waves due to a high-pressure system.
An article in ABC News states that high temperature alerts were issued as daily record highs were possible in more than 30 locations. These locations reportedly include Mobile in Alabama; Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa in Florida; Albany and Savannah in Georgia; Baton Rouge and Shreveport in Louisiana; Jackson in Mississippi; Medford and Portland in Oregon; and Austin, Dallas, and Houston in Texas.
High Temperature Alerts in Coming Days
According to an article in MSN, high temperature alerts in the coming days will slightly fluctuate as a cold front will sweep through. This suggests that the cold front from the North will lower the high temperature alerts in some areas and bring conditions almost back to normal for the first time in 2023.
