At first, I thought these meterologists were just having fun with the heat wave... but the real purpose was to show us how hot your car gets, even in the shade.
Hopefully, they made their point. "Look before you lock! On average 38 children die in hot cars each year."
Dogs, children, NO ONE should be left in a car in this kind of heat.
And while those of us on the Gulf Coast are used to what heat can do, other areas of the country are finding out the hard way this weekend.
Forecasters are predicting a dangerous heat wave over two-thirds of the U.S. this weekend. Millions of Americans will be sweltering as temperatures top 100 degrees across the Midwest and East Coast. The National Weather Service says a large dome of high pressure will allow temperatures to surge into the 90s and 100s in many locations, with no relief at night as low temperatures remain in the upper 70s and 80s. Heat advisories and excessive heat warnings are in effect in parts of Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. Heat advisories are also posted in parts of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Forecasters say record highs are possible from the western Plains to the East Coast.
