Heat Wave Hangs On

Heat Wave Hangs On

Summer decided to finally stick around here in the last stretch of the season. While summer doesn't officially end for nearly four more weeks, our average temperature is now dropping day by day.

The actual air temperatures are rather close to normal for mid-late July, but we’re paying the price for the rainfall from last week as extra moisture is now in the air. It’s visible in the haze and even more apparent when you step out your door. This mugginess is being realized as heat indices betwee... More>>
