Crack the egg and fry it up baby! We are talking hot! Today near the lake it will be 90 and inland 96 with a heat index it will feel like it’s in the 100s. That continues on into Memorial Day, sunny with temps 89 near the lake and 95 inland. So as you are washing down the 5th brat with a cold one, make sure one out of three of those cold ones is a tall cold glass of water. Come Tuesday, more of the same sunny with temps near the lake 85 and inland 92. Night time temps during that duration will be 64 near the lake and 70 inland. Definitely AC weather!
Come Wednesday, a low front broaches the area. With it comes a relatively high threat of rain and thunderstorms of 70% probability.
Keep it safe with the sunscreen and water. Due to the holiday we are issuing a CLC (Checkout Line Congestion) Advisory for both today and Monday due to the high probability of HHHH (Hostess Ho Ho Hoarder) entering the grocery store area in high numbers. So grab those hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and chips early. These HHHH tend to buy things in mass quantities. One would think they are feeding the Russian and US armed forces in one sitting. Remember the warnings. Avoid eye contact and political debate. Play it safe people.
Please also know that there is a Air Quality Alert for today. See below for details.
One would assume that the Air Quality and CLC are directly related. However, NO! There is no scientific evidence of there being a direct or indirect correlation between air quality and CLC. However after Uncle Sam has had his fifth brat with beans there can be some real air quality issues in a 1/2 radius of the man. But you gotta love him as he tells the story about how he went skinny dipping at Porter Beach in midday for the like 1000th time. I know, even by now you just can’t unsee that in your minds eye.
