Mother Nature will be turning up the heat tomorrow with highs expected in the mid-90s. Try to limit your time outdoors during this hot spell, but if you must be outside, seek shade as much as you can, drink plenty of water and take breaks as often as possible. Visit an air conditioned place such as the many local businesses, Community Services of Starke County, Pulaski County Human Services or your local library.
It’s been quite hot early this summer and WKVI’s Accuweather.com Meteorologist, Heather Zehr, says we could see higher-than-normal temperatures this summer.
“It look like at least here in the short term, we’re still going to have to deal with more hot weather than cool weather and I think temperatures are going to be trending above normal probably for at least the first half of July,” said Zehr. “We may see a little turn back to more normal temperatures.”
Unfortunately, there isn’t much in terms of rain in the near future.
“That is still something I’m not seeing a lot of and I think as long as we’re running on the hot side, it’s going to be tough to get much in the way of rain.”
