Sauna-like heat dome is set to smother 50 MILLION Americans with tropical humidity this week: 110f weather could smash records set in 1925 – as Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina brace for highs


  • Americans are being told to brace themselves for another week of record-breaking temperatures
  • A ‘heat dome’ is created when atmospheric pressure forms a lid over an area, preventing radiation from escaping but still allowing the sun’s rays in
  • This week the heat dome caused record temperatures in Tennessee, Missouri and Nebraska, and saw the power grid collapse in the Ohio capital, Columbus
  • Next week the dome will cover 50 million people, with Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina particularly affected
  • Atlanta is looking at a forecast of 98 degrees on Tuesday and 100 on Wednesday and Thursday, while Macon could see highs around 102 or 103 degrees
  • It means that Atlanta will break records set during the Second World War, and Macon’s records set in 1925 
  • Forecasters say the heat dome will remain over the United States for the next week or two 

Fifty million Americans are bracing for a searing ‘heat dome’ weather event that will bring tropical humidity, temperatures of up to 110f and searing conditions set to smash records set in 1925.

The extreme summer weather will begin next Tuesday, and intensify from Wednesday, with Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina set to endure conditions up to 20f hotter than they’d normally see at this time of year.

Alabama will record temperatures of up to 102f, Georgia is predicted to see 103f weather, and parts of South Carolina will also nudge into triple figures too.
