Morning Coffee Report 6-28-19

Weather

Friday forecast is HOT, I can’t emphasize this enough! Wake up to 71 at 6 a.m. on Friday.

Friday will be mostly sunny all day with temperatures into the 90’s, chance of rain is less than 10% throughout the day, but with my luck this will be the day we will experience a good summer downpour. So starting at 1 p.m. and going through to midnight be prepared for a possible shower.

Humidity will be very high in the morning with 87% at 6 a.m. At 9 a.m. the temperature will have already reached 80 degrees and the humidity will drop slightly to 69%.

By noon the temperature will be 89 and humidity 51%. If you must be out, hydrate and be prepared to pre-cool vehicles before going anywhere.

Friday is definitely not a fun day to take children or pets in the car unless you absolutely have to. And never leave either unattended in a vehicle.

Plan inside activities rather than outdoor unless you have ways to keep cool, like a swimming pool! By 3 p.m. the temperature will reach a high of 92 degrees with a humidity of 43%. The real feel will be 101 degrees.

Let me repeat that, The temperature will be 92 but will FEEL like 101 degrees! If that’s not a good enough excuse to stay inside then remember mosquitoes come out about this time. And if they don’t come out about this time it means it’s too damn hot for them! So stay inside and stay cool!

Please ensure pets are in cool shade and have plenty of water, better yet, drag the dogs in and go carry the cats kicking and screaming into the house for as long as they will put up with it!

By 6 p.m. the temperature will fall slightly to 88 degrees with a humidity of 52%, notice that humidity is rising again. It will feel like 94 degrees.

Temperatures will start to drop quickly but still be pretty hot, reaching 81 by 9 p.m. and 76 at midnight.

Overnight will fall through the low 70 with a low of 72 at 5 a.m. Expect another scorcher on Saturday.

GARDEN TIPS FOR WATERING:

If you have vegetables you want to water first don’t water during the middle of the day, water either early in the morning or after dinner when things are cooled down. Remember to let the water run until the hoses cool down and don’t water any plants from the top. Water low to the ground or use a soaker hose if possible.

Watering plants on their leaves when the temperature is very high will have a steaming affect on your plants.

Photography:

If you insist on getting out and about and want to take some photos be sure to allow your camera to adjust to the temperature change. If you come out of a cold restaurant or car into the summer heat and humidity, chances are your lens will be foggy for quite some time. Also extreme temperature changes are not good for electronics so try to minimize going from one extreme to the other. If you have a small cooler consider taking it with you to help with slowly acclimating your camera to from cold to hot and hot to cold.

EVENTS:

4th of July Fireworks will be shot off on the 4th, that’s Thursday, be prepared for some delays as the police will be directing traffic after the show. Fireworks are shot off from the municipal pier located at the east end of Hawthorne street. Residents with town stickers can park at any metered space for free.

Fireworks can be viewed very well from the Naval tower located at the Northern most side of the boardwalk and all the way to the end of the public beach leading out to the point.

As you pass the range tower on the point visibility becomes less optimal. Of course watching from a boat in the water is always a spectacular site. The Municipal pier will be closed early in the day to allow the pyrotechnic professional to set up for the show.

The fireworks start shortly after dark. Usually after 9 p.m. We hope you enjoy the show. As always if you have any questions please post them in the comments section and we will try to answer them all to the best of our knowledge.

Have a happy Independence Day!

Upcoming Event July 5- Montross First Friday
