I like to do weather forecasts as a form of documentation. Not that I’m doing the forecasting myself, just the relaying.
And I love talking about temperatures
Here then is the 5-day forecast for Kansas City this warm August morning, a nice contrast to the forecast in Ireland I posted 2 weeks back.
Actual temperatures first followed by the RealFeel, which at this time of year is hotter. Centigrade is in brackets. And the descriptive summary is by the same forecaster.
Sunday 100 (37) - 113 (45)
Sunny to partly cloudy and very hot; extreme heat can be dangerous
Monday 100 (37) - 109 (42)
Mostly sunny and very hot; extreme heat can be dangerous
Tuesday 100 (37) - 109 (42)
Blazing sunshine and very hot; extreme heat can be dangerous
Wednesday 100 (37) - 102 (38)
Mostly sunny, very hot and humid; extreme heat can be dangerous
Thursday 98 (36) - 100 (37)
Breezy in the morning; otherwise, mostly sunny and hot
Looks like it’s cooling down come Thursday then.
And the low temperatures, which typically occur in the hour before sunrise, are all higher than the temperatures in Ireland that would have seen my family, a not unusual Irish family, on the beach and in the water.
UPDATE: It’s 114F on the Real Feel heat index at 1:30pm here in Kansas City and there is an “Excessive Heat Warning” in effect until tomorrow evening. In the KC region 49 counties in Missouri and Kansas are currently under advisories, watches, or severe weather warnings
I think I’ll phone home and see how the weather is in Ireland now.
