  1. So what's it going to take for this heat dome to go away? Are we stuck with it all summer?

  2. Unfortunately probably for the most part. There looks like some break about mid month. The other thing to watch for is sub tropical or monsoonal moisture being drawn northward in August. This happened in 1976
