Summer Heat

Although the summer season is not yet here, the summer heat has arrived. The high temperature reached 87F (31C) on Friday and was just as warm today. Fortunately, the humidity has been low, but that will soon change.
Portions of Florida have received Biblical amounts of rain over the last week. Flagler and Volusia counties have received over 24 inches (61cm) of rain from a tropical wave in the area. Although this is a tremendous amount of precipitation, it is welcomed news. A prolonged drought over northeastern Florida have encouraged wildfires and water shortages over the last few years.
The low pressure are bringing all of this rain is forecast to make it's way into our area over the next week bringing a daily chance of some heavy rain.
