Hello Summer, My Old Friend
Just when we thought cooler temperatures were going to stay around for a while, Summer opened her doors and said, "Welcome Back!" Still a few more days of warmer days are ahead of us but the cooler temps are waiting in the wings.

Some storms Thursday could become strong to severe, so now is a good time to start thinking about potential alternatives for outdoor activities planned for Thursday afternoon/evening.
