Weather Update for Thursday June 28, 2018.
A high pressure area has moved into the area, clearing out the weather we have been experiencing. No rain for a few day. Today clear skies with a high of 86 in the Highland area, cooler near the lake, but only by a degree and warmer inland by a few degrees. This is the time of year where our lake and inland temps start to equalize. Humidity is currently sitting at 100 % which will make for some uncomfortable conditions as the air heats up.
Tomorrow, clear skies with a high of 96 in the Highland area. With the elevated humidity levels and relatively calm winds, the heat index will be up there around 111 flippin degrees.
Saturday, clear skies with a high of 96 and a southwest wind at 10 mph. The heat index will drop a bit as the air dries out. Expect the index to remain in the 100s. Towards evening hours, there will be a 20% chance of rain and thunderstorms.
Night time temperatures during this same period will be warm hooving around the mid 70s with a relatively high humidity. So if you have air conditioning, it’s time to turn that booger on or que up the window fans.
Please remember your pets. Do not leave them out for extended periods of time. Make sure you and your children and pets are kept hydrated. The sun will be a scorcher, so remember to use sunscreen if you must be outside for a prolonged period of time.
“Oh! We’re having a heatwave, a tropical heatwave
The temperature’s rising, it isn’t surprising,”
With that we are issuing a CLC Advisory (Checkout Line Congestion). As always with adverse weather conditions, there are those who believe this is the end of times and will go empty the store shelves for no apparent reason. So again, remember the safety rules when you encounter these folk at the Stracks or where ever you shop; 1. No eye contact 2. Keep your cart at least 5 ft away or arm length 3. Avoid any political conversations
