We are going to see highs in the upper 80s to the lower 90s most of the week, Tuesday will be in the mid 80s. Not only will the temps be hot, but the humidity very high, as a tropical-like air mass sticks around. This will put our heat index values well into the mid-90s this week, if not 100° or more the hottest days. Now is the time to remind yourself of the extreme heat safety rules: stay hydrated, take breaks in the AC & shade, limit time outside for kids & pets, check in on the elderly, and NEVER leave a child or pet in a vehicle alone! If the temperature outside is 90°, the temperature in the car gets to a deadly 119° in just 30 minutes, and 137° within an hour! Stay cool & safe everyone!
