Weather, and what to make of it!

Sometime this coming winter, we'll look back on these hot days and wish we had a few. But for now, the weather maps are colored mostly red indicating super hot temps.
The last I heard, the long-range forecast is for continued hot weather on into September. As far as I'm concerned, the hot weather can go away then and let the cooler weather in that leads to hunting season, bucks thinking about the rut, and those fall colors we like to see.
Remember, when it gets this hot with equally high humidity, the formula for quick, sometimes severe thunderstorms is a definite consideration.
That means staying close to the radio or other news source, especially if you are on the water. Boaters and anglers need to keep a weather eye as they say. These storms usually show themselves late in the afternoon or early evening.
The good thing about them is that they move fast. The bad thing though is they can be very dangerous and destructive.
Stay safe and stay tuned!

  1. At least in Michigan we have changing weather and seasonal differences to make things interesting. It is boring to have the same weather and live on flat land with no lakes.
