Excessive Heat Warning
An EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING has been issued for the entire Metro through Monday at 7pm. We are going to continue with temperatures near 100 degrees the next two days... and our dew points are also running high. The two will combine for heat index values in the range of 105 to 110 degrees. Remember the safety tips if you have to be outside:
* Avoid physical activity
* Drink plenty of non-alcoholic, non-caffinated beverages
* Avoid being in direct sunlight
* Wear light colored-loose fitting clothing
* Check on the elderly, children, and those on certain medications. These groups are the most likely to suffer a heat related illness.
Remember, the KC Parks & Rec have opened up all PUBLIC pools for FREE SWIMMING through Monday. This includes the following:
Swope Park Pool
Brush Creek Pool
Budd Park Pool
Line Creek Pool
And of course, there are always the fountains down at Crown Center! We were down there on Friday... it looked like a lot of fun!! Too bad we were working! :)
Anyway... we are still looking for some relief by mid-week. A cold front is set to head our way sometime on Tuesday. It looks like there will be some heavy rain with this front!! The heaviest looks to be up in Nebraska and Iowa, although we might see some good accumulations here, too. Here is the GFS forecast on rainfall totals through Wednesday evening:

If that verifies... we could see an inch or so in some spots. But look at that heavy rain to our north... some places with FOUR inches!! We will keep you updated on how this will play out over the next several days! At any rate... it looks like a nice cool-down behind the front... with temperatures in the lower to mid 80s! Wow... doesn't that sound nice?! Hang in there...
Hope you're enjoying the weekend!
