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: Monday the pattern continues. Some moisture will be sticking around in the morning hours. Waking up temperatures will be in the mid-70s. Throughout the day the skies will be mostly sunny giving us ample opportunity to heat up during the day. Temperatures will peak in the mid-90s but feels like temperatures will be in the low triple digits. A quick shower may pop in during the afternoon hours, but most will stay completely dry and hot. The heat will be sticking around all week so be sure you have a way of beating the heat during peak daytime heating hours. The pattern continues throughout the week and temperatures continue to rise until our next rain chance comes in on Wednesday.
