Speaking of summertime …

It’s going to be hot hot heat this weekend. Here is a warning from the Norwich town officials:

A prolonged period of dangerously high temperatures and heat index values are expected to impact the Upper Valley. High temperatures will reach 90+ degrees on Saturday, and should continue 90+ degrees through Wednesday (July 4th). The highest temperatures and heat indices are expected Sunday and Monday, with temperatures 95-99F and heat index values above 100 degrees.

Here’s the National Weather Service page for Lebanon, including the current hazardous weather outlook, which says:

A hot and humid air mass will move into the region this weekend,
bringing a prolonged period of high heat and humidity. It is
possible that Heat Advisory criteria (heat index 95 degrees) will be
exceeded for portions of the area as early as Sunday and extending
into next week.

There is the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms to move
into the region from the north Saturday evening and Saturday night.
The primary threat from these storms would be damaging winds.

So when someone tells you to “go jump in a lake” this weekend, they are probably just concerned for your health. Be careful out there, folks!

Oh yeah, and if that’s not enough, one more thing.

Don’t forget the bug spray.
