It seemed like we would never feel the summer-time heat, but that won't be the case for this weekend. We are going to be sweating away our first 90s of the year (first one since last September). In fact last year saw the same number of 90° days than the previous four years combined! Not only will the temps be hot this weekend, but the humidity will be pretty high as well, putting our heat index (feel-like temps) in the upper 90 range. Please take time to refresh yourself on the extreme heat safety rules: Drink plenty of water & fluids. Take frequent breaks in the AC or shade. Wear light & loose fitted clothes. Check on the elderly relatives and neighbors. And never leave a child or pet in a vehicle! 90° outside = 119° inside the car in 30 minutes, & 137° in the car in an hour!
