Shifting Gears From A Heat Advisory To An Excessive Heat Warning

It's nearly a split with the Heat Advisory counties and the Excessive Heat Warning Counties. So no matter which category you fall in... it is going to be DANGEROUSLY HOT!

I know that if you walked outside at any point of the day you realized that temps were hot. That even includes 6am! Temps have been extremely hot all day long no matter where you live. These are the highs from Tuesday.

This is not the Feels Like Temp. Those numbers are straught up air temperature. The humidity pushed them into the upper 90s and even into the low 100s.

The big difference between the Heat Advisory and the Excessive Heat Warning is... the warning will include a Heat Index of 105+ for a few hours while the advisory will mean that those values will remain in the 100-105 degree range. Neither one of these situations is anything you should take lightly. Bot are very dangerous with a lot of exposure to the heat.

Here's what the RPM is spitting out for Wednesday.

Dangerous! Once again... I am posting the safety tips to our web channel. I know you can find these positioned in other postings, but I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't post them in the update.

Just keep in mind that relief is coming on Thursday. That's our next chance for widespread showers & storms. Wednesday might feature a few isolated rounds of rain. If this is indeed happens to you... you will notice the temps dropping some. It will keep ot rather miserable though... VERY STICKY! The best hope will come from the cloud cover that's positioned to our north with some of the widespread showers & storms. Those clouds could roll in and keep the sun out... well... somewhat! No matter... Stay cool if you can!



Posted by: big al HEY JIM, how was your round @ stonecrest sunday saw you on the putting green as I was leaving, me i shot a wonderfull 95 thanks to numbers 3,4,10, and 17.

Big Al... It wasn't a very good day at all! If I could have kept the ball in play on 2, 3, 13, & 14 It would have been smooth sailing. On 13 I hit it out 3 times off the tee. Stupid white Everything else was fine, but those holes off the tee whipped me!

C-Ya Bye
