Heat Arrives Just As Summer Ends



Bookmark and Share

The short-lived heat wave had many of us in the office itching to punch the time card and get out and soak it up.  It felt like summer on Wednesday as temperatures around the Upper Midwest were 10-15 degrees above average.  Many of us should be seeing temperatures in the 70s, but the heat pushed its way north.
With the official start of fall on Sunday, people are getting out and enjoying the weather.  Forecasted high temperatures appear to be dropping into the weekend, meaning this could be summers last push.

It’s one of those days where parents appreciate the jungle gyms and play grounds, because soon the kids will be stuck inside.  Amanda Espeland, who was in town from Sheldon, Iowa, watched as her son Gannon explored.  "We try to get him to the park as much as we can, and as soon as the weather starts to turn colder I don't know what we're going to do. Try to find something to do inside but it’s nice that we can still enjoy it out here."

Others, like Cinthya Johnson are going to miss summer for the activities, and the wardrobe.  “I think wearing shorts, wearing all the summer clothes, enjoying the sun, going out for walks or runs."
 
Days are becoming shorter as well; we are losing three to four minutes of sunlight every day.  Naturally, it's that time of year when closets around the country start to lose the t-shirts and swimsuits, and begin to fill with sweatshirts and jackets.
