We're having a really hot summer here in east central Minnesota. But I'll bet that those of us living here already knew that. It's been a year of extremes - just a couple months ago, we thought that summer had been canceled. Six months ago each snowfall broke a new record. Mostly, living in Minnesota, the weather gives us lots to talk about.
Here's a nifty tool from the National Weather Service to calculate heat index (and make you look real smart around the water cooler.)
Also, follow the link for "Heat Index Chart and Explanation." And to be prepared, there's a link to more calculators, where you can calculate the wind chill in just a few months. Uff da!
