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.

Are we expecting some severe weather this afternoon/evening period? 

looks like some rough patches on the radar heading our way in the next few hours.   It seems to be moving pretty fast.  It's always tough to predict where the rough patches will hit.

(My migraine detector hasn't gone off yet.)

Probably not.  Just thunderstorms, not severe

Thank the sea breeze

Boy I cut the grass about an hour ago. It’s steamy out there. I could feel the moisture in the air. Might get some thunderstorms later on no?

I would like to take this opportunity to advise everyone that it is hot outside. I was also doing some yardwork, it is really the kind of day that’ll poach your goobers.
