It’s hot! Today, Thursday July 20, the temperature here at the house reached 100 degrees from 3:47 PM to 3:57 PM with a dew point of 73.6 degrees. That yielded a relative humidity of 43 percent and ‘heat index’ of 112. Now, at 6:15 PM, it is still 99.3 degrees with a dew point of 72.3 degrees yielding a ‘heat index’ of 109. An ‘excessive heat warning’ continues through Saturday with forecast highs near 100 and lows in the upper 70s. Then, (not holding my breath) a chance of thunderstorms from late Saturday through Sunday with some 10 degrees cooling by Sunday into Monday. At least there is hope in the forecast. In the mean time, it’s hot!
