First of all with the commentary on masks yesterday it is my opinion that if you are in public wear a mask if not for oneself do it for those who wish to stay healthy. There are many like myself who have underlying conditions in which COVID could be a killer. Tom Hanks said the other day he, like myself, was raised in a generation where you did what you have to do for the survival of the nation. There is a big difference between the Greatest Generation and the Me generation. During WWII the men of our country rushed out to fight the pandemic of Hitler and Hirohito. The rest did what they had to do to support them. Today we only have to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Just some food for thought.
Our chance of rain increases today and Friday. Today the rain will probably set up east of the lake breeze, meaning a better chance east of US131. Still, along the 131 corridor we have 50/50 shot of seeing some rain. Humidity will be near the 70 mark which is uncomfortable to say the least.
This is the hazardous weather outlook from the NWS:
.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight Heat indices of 95 to 100 are expected again this afternoon. Scattered thunderstorms could produce torrential downpours and brief gusty winds, along with dangerous lightning strikes. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday Scattered thunderstorms on Friday could produce heavy rainfall and localized flooding. Isolated storms are also possible Saturday through Monday, mainly inland from Lake Michigan in the afternoons. Although less humid weather will move in for the weekend, heat and humidity will return again by the middle of next week.
