The sensational headlines are coming fast and furious. And the focus is on “Heat Index” because those numbers are higher and make people think about how terrible the heat is. Yet, we are not likely to set any records this weekend. In other words, we’ve been this hot before. It’s summer in PA. It gets hot from time to time.
Some notes on this:
So be careful. Be smart. We will survive. We will live to see another day. This is not a death ridge. This is not the apocalypse. It is weather doing its thing. It gets hot in the summer.
(Side thought: We will avg about 10 degrees above avg on Sat. Lots of headlines coming out about the danger. Now in Jan, if its 10 degrees below avg (25 for high, 8 for a low) what headlines would be there? None. Except for “cold”. In other words, it gets cold in Jan. Just like in July. It gets hot.)
Our heatwave will end Monday with showers and storms into Tue. Much cooler next week.
Stay safe. And enjoy.
