More questions are coming to light and you will hear a couple. Questions in the Tropics center about environments. One: How long will it last? Two: Where will it go? What am I talking about? Yep! Don! It is doing some indication of intensification. But that is counteracted by a few competing processes. That will result in a probable dissipation. And that is going to happen in 2-3 days. Bye Don. It was sweet!
Here in Greensboro, North Carolina the temperature has slipped some 22 degrees after 0.25 degrees of rain. It has been hot and humid and as a consequence stormy.
Summer is heading into the Fall. The prognostications for Hurricanes and then landfall, are quite over-casted.

…Air Quality Alert in effect for Tuesday July 18…
The Mid-America Regional Council has issued an Air Quality Alert…in
effect for Tuesday July 18. Outdoor Air Quality Index, or AQI, values
in excess of 100 are expected with ozone being the primary pollutant.
People and businesses are urged to avoid activities which lead to
ozone formation. These activities include refueling vehicles or
topping off when refueling idling vehicles unnecessarily and using
gasoline powered lawn equipment. Positive activities include car
pooling, biking to work, delaying or combining errands, and using
water-based paints and cleaners.
When pollution levels are elevated, the Mid-America Regional Council
recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous outdoor
physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health effects.
People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of elevated
levels of pollutants include the very young, and those with pre-
existing respiratory problems such as asthma or heart disease. Those
with symptoms should consider consulting their personal physician.

north of Highway 36 where the watch remains in effect.

The National Weather Service in Kansas City/Pleasant Hill has

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
