While there have been few complaints overall about the mild summer we have experienced, a heat wave will likely make us forget about the cooler temperatures as we head into the last week of August and Labor Day weekend. Below, a video forecast discussion covering the whats and whys of the heat wave, including how hot it could get.
The heat wave could bring us the highest temperatures we have experienced all summer by the end of the week (so far, 97 is the warmest it has been). Plan accordingly and practice heat safety as heat indices rise above 100-105.
