HEAT ADVISORY FOR HARTFORD, TOLLAND AND WINDHAM COUNTIES UNTIL 8PM

Visit Wxedge.com to read my short article on how you can calculate the amount of water you need to consume on dangerously warm days... High pressure offshore still deflecting rain to the west and north. In fact if you happen to be heading out and traveling on 95, take a look to the west and see the clouds building, and then look east and you'll see a major difference in cloud coverage. That's the dominating high that is keeping our nation's birthday ideal across CT! Unfortunately the flow of air is bringing us moist, uncomfortable, muggy air and so it is going to be another humid night and trend that way. 

In addition to very warm temperatures, the relative humidity is very high. When we combine the two we get conditions that are dangerously uncomfortable. Last year I wrote an article on how to calculate the Heat Index where you are, on my blog, Fair Weather Fashion. I also wrote an article on how to calculate the amount of water you need to consume on days like this on order to stay healthy.Just type in your height and weight (follow the link in the article)and it'll give you an idea of how much water to drink to avoid getting sick. http://fairweatherfashion.wordpress.com/2011/07/21/major-heatwave/
