Are You Ready? It's Gonna Get HOT! HOT! HOT!

We knew it was just a matter of time before it got hot in the area.  And, that time has nearly arrived, we can now see it in the forecast.

It was back in 2011 we got to 100° in March!  And, if that wasn't bad enough we reached 110° in May!  Yuck!

It's not going to get that hot yet (or at least I sure hope the forecast doesn't change over the next few days to be that hot, yikes!)

However, it is time to start talking about heat index.  Remember 'heat index'?  That is what the temperature feels like when you add in the humidity.  It's also called the 'feels like' or even 'humidex.'  No matter what you call it, we are dealing with it very soon.

Looks like it will really begin to kick in on Friday, June 7, 2019 and stick around until Sunday.

So, let's take a look.  You know the drill, look for your county and match the color code with the expect heat index temperature that day, which is listed at the top below the title.

This isn't *Heat Advisory* or *Excessive Heat Warning* criteria but it will still be miserable.  So get ready, this is your warning that it's on its way.

Stay cool my friends!
