Head to the Beach

Head to the Beach

My advice to you: head to the beach if you can. Today and tomorrow will be very hot and humid, making the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean feel downright pleasant. Watch out for possible thunderstorms, some of which could be severe. If you plan to be outside, drink plenty of water to prevent heat exhaustion and remember the sunscreen. Sunday’s forecast shows some relief from the heat, and a passing high pressure system will ensure a sunny day.

Last week saw the development of Tropical Storm Chantal, the third named storm of the Atlantic Ocean this year. Chantal formed well away from land and soon moved northward, ending its brief stint as a tropical cyclone. Determined not to go unnoticed, Chantal’s remnants brought heavy rain and flooding to Newfoundland on Wednesday.
