PIO message –
Friendly reminder: REAL weather predictions should be based from real science (like our professionals from the National Weather Service @NWS)…not a fugly little fat groundhog on one-single day.
C’mon peeps! Common sense right?!?
And for the second disaster trick, this picture….
IT AIN’T REAL!!!
Don’t be a dingbat, stop sharing this fake picture during disasters and/or flooding.
Aaaaaand yes, an easy twofer here too: TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN!!!
Be a good steward of social media information.
Ever wonder what “Heat Index” means?
The Heat Index is a measure of how hot it really feels when relative humidity is factored in with the actual air temperature. To find the Heat Index temperature, look at the Heat Index Chart above or check our Heat Index Calculator. As an example, if the air temperature is 96°F and the relative humidity is 65%, the heat index–how hot it feels–is 121°F. The red area without numbers indicates extreme danger. The National Weather Service will initiate alert procedures when the Heat Index is expected to exceed 105°-110°F (depending on local climate) for at least 2 consecutive days.
NWS also offers a Heat Index chart for area with high heat but low relative humidity. Since heat index values were devised for shady, light wind conditions, exposure to full sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15°F. Also, strong winds, particularly with very hot, dry air, can be extremely hazardous.

The weather is about to get NAST!
I’m no meteorologist, but I think this is a bad sign when clouds look like this. #fugly
