Fighting A Hot Summer

Fighting A Hot Summer

This summer, the temperature is shooting dangerously to triple digit in many parts of USA. By early June, many regions have already experienced the hike in high temperatures, though for the short period. It usually occurs when the high pressure in the upper atmosphere of the southern plains shifts towards northern areas, expanding heat across much of the nation.

Along with the high temperatures, the heat index also shoots to three figures, somewhere in between 100° and 110°. In such weather conditions it is required to take extra precautions while going outdoors. The heat can actually fry your skin and high ultra-violet rays.

Usually the places like Missouri, Kansas City, Colorado, Pierre, South Dakota, Dallas and Lubbock are prone to face high temperature conditions. It may be a threat for residents as high humidity level also increases the discomfort level. People who are sick or elderly need to take extra precautions.
