And the Heat Goes On

The heat and humidity are back. An excessive heat warning has been issued for Hamilton county in Ohio through the end of the week and a heat advisory has been issued for Franklin county in Indiana and points south. Heat index values are forecast to be in the 100-105 degree range. As a result of the heat, Cincinnati Public Schools have canceled classes for Thursday and possibly Friday if the forecast holds true. Several other area schools are dismissing students early in an attempt to avoid the warmest part of the day. Lack of air-conditioned classrooms is the cause of concern.
