A Heat Advisory is issued when the combination of heat and

humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees

for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any

length of time.

Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health

conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air

conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that

has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members

and neighbors.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and

Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks

in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by

heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke

is an emergency! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.


Reminder, there is a Heat Advisory from 11am this morning (Thurs 8/4) through tomorrow 8pm.

There are likely thunderstorms in the forecast tomorrow afternoon and evening, and a chance of thunderstorms each afternoon over the weekend.

You know the drill by now: Stay cool, stay hydrated

And yes, the rain missed us again yesterday

I'll write up something about drought after I finish binging The Sandman. Person's got to have his priorities

Heat Advisory continues today and Monday. Slight chance of showers and thunderstorms this evening.

Expecting Tuesday and Wednesday to also be advisory level hot, with some relief perhaps by Thursday.

Mon, Aug 8th

Heat Advisory has been extended through Tuesday, Aug 9th. Heat should abate somewhat starting on Wednesday

Slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon, chance of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday

I think we have to retract the dome so some of this rain can actually hit us 

Heat Advisory continues today, Tuesday August 9th, with heat index tempuratures over 100° again this afternoon. There is also another decent chance of showers and thunderstorms

Tomorrow, still quite warm but just below Advisory level. Again, chance of showers and thunderstorms
