National Weather Service Urges Public To Stay Smart During Summer Heat

The National Weather Service is reminding the public to be cautious about the summer weather.


Chris Miller, National Weather Service meteorologist, reminds to not leave pets or kids in the car even for short periods of time. Temperatures inside cars can reach upwards of 100 degrees Fahrenheit.



Miller indicates that with temperatures in the 80s, humidity and direct sunlight can cause it to feel much warmer. He advises keeping an eye on the elderly and young children as they are the most susceptible to heat.



Miller says current projections do not show many 90 degree days the rest of the summer.
