Local Weather Concerns:
STORMS: Any storm that forms today will be capable of becoming severe. Those should be very isolated, though chances could be a bit higher for northern Fenterss County. That risk is a bit higher for all of us on Saturday, as t-storm chances increase with an incoming frontal system. The main risk is a damaging wind gust. Always be mindful of that lightning, as well. If you’re close enough to hear thunder, you’re close enough to be struck.
HEAT: Be safe in the heat. Take breaks in the shade and drink plenty of water.
Why is it that if you donate a kidney, people love you. But if you donate five kidneys, they call the police.
