Halfway through the week and halfway through June. The atmosphere will be bringing the heat again today. The mountaintop will be witnessing the thermometer tap the 60s and 70s this afternoon while the lowlands endure more of the 90s. And with heat advisories calling for indices in the triple digits, escaping to the cool shade and calming waters of the mountains sure sounds like a solid plan. There is a chance for some isolated thunderstorms appearing late this afternoon as the heat rises and clouds build. Otherwise count on dappled sun and a soupy haze limiting views to what barely spans a few miles it seems. When it’s this toasty, we sure go through a lot more lemonade than hot chocolate and coffee, and rightfully so. Just keep loading up on those electrolytes before, during, and after your hike!
