Hang On Amarillo! Cooler Temps are on the Way
Okay, Summer isn't officially here yet for a few more weeks but yeah, it's hot outside. I don't know about you, but when the thermometer gets above 100 degrees, I pretty much stop caring. There's good news ahead it looks like our little mini heat wave is coming to an end later on this evening.
There's plenty of folks who like to start talking about heat indexes and dry heat vs. wet heat here in the panhandle. Earlier today I ran into someone at the Toot N' Totum who was ready to leave the state because this "isn't what they signed up for"
A cold front is coming
My friends, let me get on my soap box here and tell you the good news!!! No I ain't gonna try and talk religion with you. I am bringing you the good news of a cold front! we aren't going back to winter like conditions here but when you look at the forecast for the next few days (by the way thanks to Joe Puma our friends over at Storm Search 7)
For the folks who aren't from here, yes we do celebrate cold fronts that bring us back into the 90's. Those 10 degrees DO make that much of a difference especially this time of year when the dry line decides it wants to do it's little dosi-do dance back and forth across the Texas Panhandle. When it's not kicking up storms it has a way of taking a hot day and making it more miserable by adding in some gulf humidity in to the mix that has you looking for the nearest pool or other way to cool down.
Winter ain't comin' anytime soon and it's only been a few days but I say we take the victories when we can. But even at 90 degrees don't forget to check the back seat of your car and remember, an extra water bottle is your best freind
