US- Canada weather forecast (July 6): Another heatwave of summer for Monday in the US
US weather forecast for July
It was certainly a hot 4th of July weekend with highs in the upper 80’s to near 90, however, the humidity remained relatively low. This will start to creep up just a touch on Monday and we will be feeling downright tropical by the middle of the week. Nearing 90 once again on Monday, highs through the rest of the week in the low to mid 90’s, according to News 10.
The high pressure nearby has continued to supply us with a relatively dry air mass over the last several days, this has helped to keep the humidity in check.

Pesky storm to keep the southeastern US drenched into midweekPuffy fair-weather clouds for most on Monday, but there is a chance, especially south and west, for a stray afternoon shower or thunderstorm. Some of this activity may try to come close to Albany, but the majority of us will remain dry.
It is reported by the Accu Weather that Forecasters are carefully monitoring a slow-moving storm system that has brought repeated downpours to the Southeast since last week. Widespread showers and thunderstorms will continue daily into the middle of the week -- and meteorologists say tropical development of this feature cannot be fully ruled out as it wanders toward the coast.
As reported by the Weather Channel that the hottest temperatures compared to average will be focused around the Great Lakes through later this week with the easternmost dome of high pressure. This area will have temperatures 10 to 20 degrees above average at times throughout the week ahead, including Chicago, Detroit, and Buffalo, New York.

These areas have been doused by repeated downpours since last week, so any additional rainfall may struggle to soak into the saturated ground. As a result, the risk of flash flooding will be high."Showers and thunderstorms will be widespread from extreme East Texas and Louisiana to Georgia and South Carolina as a low-pressure area drifts eastward from the lower Mississippi Valley to the southern Appalachians," said the Senior Meteorologist, Joe Lundberg of the Accu Weather.
Tuesday will start with patchy fog along with a significant increase in humidity along with temperatures once again near 90. Tuesday afternoon and evening has a better chance for scattered showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms with the amount of humidity in the atmosphere, there will be plenty of moisture to work with.
"Many locations across the South and into the Southeast will receive 1-2 inches of additional rainfall through Tuesday, but isolated amounts of up to 5 inches are possible," Lundberg said, adding that the Florida Panhandle, Georgia and South Carolina may be the hardest-hit areas during the first half of the week.
"As this low slowly meanders toward the Southeast coast, the area of enhanced rainfall will shift more into the Carolinas, perhaps even extreme southeast Virginia during the latter half of the week," Lundberg said.
Canada weather forecast
The epicenter of the heat is expected to be over portions of Canada's Manitoba and Ontario provinces, where highs will be well into the 80s to around 90 degrees in some spots. A spot or two in Manitoba or Ontario could climb to near the century mark.
Modest humidity values could add a couple of degrees to the numbers below to get a slightly higher heat index.
The added humidity could become more problematic toward the middle of the upcoming week, especially during the overnight hours. Overnight lows will be kept up by the humidity.

According to the CTV News, Monday's forecast calls for sunshine and a high of 30°C with a humidex of 33 and a UV index of 9, or very high. A sun/cloud mix is in the outlook for Tuesday, with a high of 32°C. High temperatures in the low 30s are expected to continue throughout the week, with overnight lows in the low 20s. The sun will shine until Friday — the temperature will hit 33C that day.
Because of high temperature, in July, Kamloops is forecast to have an "average" severity fire season, as are most of the Southern Interior, but "well-below average" fire seasons are expected in regions to the north.
“Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the Air Quality Health Index approaching the high-risk category,” cautioned a statement from Environment Canada.
“Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle. Extreme heat affects everyone”, added Environment Canada.
