Heat Advisory extended until 7pm Friday

A Heat Advisory has been extended for the entire region until 7pm Friday. Afternoon high temperatures the next couple of days will be in the mid 90s, to possibly the upper 90s on Friday, with heat indices near 105. Overnight lows will provide little relief, only dropping into the mid 70s. Be sure to take precautions against the heat if you must be outside, including wearing light-colored, loose-fitting clothing (or swimsuits!), drinking plenty of water or other non-alcoholic beverages, and staying the shade as much as possible. Don't forget to check on those most susceptible to the heat: young children, the elderly, and your pets!

Fortunately, as of mid-morning, most residents now have power restored after last Friday's storm - less than 5,000 customers remain out. I have written an event analysis on the storm which you can find on It contains commentary and analysis, damage pictures (as well as some of the awesome sunset that evening!), radar and satellite loops, etc. Check it out!
