Sun and Heat Safety: Some friendly reminders for your summer of fun events—sunburn can occur in less than 15 minutes with the extreme U.V. Index typical of this time of year. In addition to that, heat exhaustion and heat stroke can set in just as quickly. Seek medical attention if you or somebody you know is affected. While we all enjoy a list of cool beverages, be sure water is at least a part of that list! Finally, look before you lock. DO NOT leave people or pets in an unattended car.
Up Next: We could be flirting with some record breaking heat this weekend. The weekend is shaping up to be a hot one. As we head into Sunday, temperatures will be starting off in the mid-70s with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will rapidly warm into the upper 90s throughout the day. A shower is possible in the afternoon hours, but most will go without seeing rain. Starting the work week, we will see more drying out in our forecast. This will give us ample opportunity to heat up into the high-90s, some might even see 100°, throughout the week. Feels like temperatures will be in the triple digits, expect the heat advisories to continue into next week.
