2- After today and much needed rain and cooler weather, the heat returns on Monday. I am talking the return of the heat dome so all heat related warnings and advisories may come back each day. Most will depend on how humid we may be. With the rain, mosquitoes will return too, so empty ANYTHING that holds water outdoors.
3- Remember, use good common sense when working in the heat and stay hydrated.
HAVE A GOOD DAY!
