Extreme Heat Wave To Hit East Coast in Late August

The company, EarthRisk Technologies, has been working in conjunction with the Scripps Institute of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego to develop the most advanced weather prediction software yet.

The model calls for a extreme heat and steamy end to August for US East Coast residents.

“Our ability to extend the forecast beyond two weeks is an ability meteorologists and energy analysts alike have long been waiting for,” said a spokesman for EarthRisk.

Powered with this data, the platform accurately forecast more than 80 percent of the severe cold fronts -- at least 15 to 20 days in advance -- that formed in the Midwest and Eastern U.S. between November 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011, according to Reuters.

If they are correct. the region will end the summer in record temperatures - pushing energy costs thru the roof.
