The heat is on!June 15th, 2012 at 5:31 am by Tara Hastings under Weather
So I’ve been talking about it all week – it’s going to be HOT and HUMID this weekend. Today while the temperatures will be in the middle 80′s the humidity won’t be all that bad. If you’re heading to the pool don’t forget to slather on that sunscreen.
I have the “heat is on” song stuck in my head this morning and that’s because temperatures will be inching toward 90 this weekend. Our storm track or jet stream pattern is ridging northward which means we’re going to be out of the main storm path. This allows for lots of sunshine and of course the heat to rise. Because of our stagnant air mass we do have an air pollution advisory in effect today for parts of the Miami Valley. So if you do have respiratory problems be extra careful this afternoon.
I know many of you are wondering when we’re going to see some rain. We really need the rain and our best chance will come on Sunday as a cold front approaches the area. Many of the computer models are coming together showing there’s a better chance of rain. I’ll make sure to do my rain dance.
And speaking of dancing….the studio is under construction as we get ready for high definition. This morning when I came in the half of the floor was in. Since I’m all alone in the studio while the anchors are in the newsroom the promter operator and I have been jamming out to some great tunes. I’m thinking with the new floor in place we should have a dance party.
Have a FANTASTIC weekend!
