HEAT INDEX READINGS FROM 100 TO 105 EXPECTED TODAY...

Air temperatures this afternoon are expected to reach the lower to mid 90s once again at most locations. This, combined with very steamy humidity levels, could push heat index values up into the 100 to 105 range at many locations. In addition, the high heat indices could last for several hours during the day.

Those with outdoor plans should take along plenty of water or non alcoholic beverages to keep hydrated. Take frequent breaks from activities and try to seek shade when possible. Also, make sure outdoor pets have plenty of fresh water.

NEVER LEAVE KIDS OR PETS UNATTENDED IN VEHICLES. LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK!!

Earlier this evening shortly before 8:00PM, we were tracking a small storm cell in which there were a few reports of a possible funnel cloud. Any photos or videos that can be submitted to us would be greatly appreciated as we continue to investigate this weather event.

Cold air funnels possible today. If you see elevated funnel clouds, be sure and take photos to send our way. These cold air funnels typically stay elevated, however on the rare occurrence that they touch down, they only cause minor damage. Below is the advisory message published from the National Weather Service.

There have been reports of cold air funnels today. These cold air funnels are developing underneath a few showers that are moving across the area. Underneath these showers...spinning columns of air that look like tornadoes may continue to develop. These funnels usually are very brief and rarely touch the ground. If these funnels do touch down...they most likely will not cause damage to life or property.

Cold air funnels are due to very cool air aloft...warm moist air near the ground...and are usually in association with a strong area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Due to
little or no wind shear...they are usually weak and very brief.

A wise surgeon once said “It’s a beautiful day to save lives”...ok, maybe that was Derek Sheperd, but either way we dig it.

Enjoy this beautiful holiday weekend, but remember.

1. Watch for yard sale traffic along Highway 25, and give yourself a little extra time traveling.
2. Wear your seat belt.
3. Wear your sunscreen.
4. If you need us, we’ll be there.

Have a great Memorial Day!
