The weather, currently.
A comfortable night of sleeping is ahead before we enjoy a blend of clouds and sunshine for Thursday with just a very small risk of a shower. Temperatures will once again be in the 70s. The dry weather continues into Friday with temperatures 75°F to 80°F in the afternoon, quite typical for the time of year. The weekend is going to be a solid beach one with temperatures reaching near 90°F inland and remaining in the 70s and 80s at the coastline. Water temperatures will be in the 60s throughout the weekend certainly warm enough for swimming. The next true chance of showers comes early next week.
What you need to know, currently.
We have a short piece up today from our founder, Eric Holthaus, on the heatwave stretching across the central United States this week.
“Despite being fairly preventable, heat-related illness is one of the most deadly weather-related impacts,” Holthaus writes. “And, while severe heat may seem less alarming than being struck by a hurricane or tornado, heat illness is much more common and is particularly dangerous for children, the elderly, and those with chronic illnesses. It is also difficult to avoid if you do not have access to air conditioning or if you work outside.”
