Staying cool in the heat... for me & kids. Cooler air coming.

The group runs have been starting earlier for the Columbus Westside Running Club because of the heat of summer.  And MAN has it been hot!
Dawn had a bridal shower last weekend so I took the kids for a run in the morning then had some fun in the swimming pool in the afternoon.  Love finding the blow-up pools on sale.  
We have also been doing more fun stuff indoors.  Like the trampoline park with Summer's preschool friends. 
Completely SOAKED in sweat.  I set out a cooler in front of the house to hit-up when I would loop by every couple of miles.
Post-run popsicle are the best!  We picked up a bunch of freeze pops from the grocery last week and very happy that we did that.
Both kids are loving them.  Evan probably loves the cold ice on his teeth.  Be spits it out once he bites it off though.  

EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING  for all of Ohio until 8pm Saturday.  High temps in the mid 90s and heat index between 105° - 110° in the afternoons.

The heat is on!  Today and Saturday our temps will warm into the mid 90s with the humidity making the heat index feel between 105° and 110° in the afternoons.  We will start the days mostly sunny then some clouds will bubble up in the afternoon.  There is a slight chance for isolated showers and storms to pop up today and tomorrow.  The best chance for rain today will be in Northern Ohio.  Overnight low temps only dip into the mid 70s, so staying very warm overnight.
Sunday will be hot as well with highs in the lower 90s as clouds start moving into the area.  We will likely see the heat index in the lower 100s.  There will be an approaching cold front for late Sunday will bring scattered showers and storms.  If the rain holds off then our temps may be a little hotter.  Scattered showers and storms likely for later Sunday, Sunday night, and then on Monday.  Some of the storms late Sunday could become strong to severe.  The Northern half of Ohio is in the Marginal Risk for severe storms.  The cold front and rain will usher in a cool down.
Highs in the lower 80s for the first half of next week.  Monday will be wet with the scattered rain then mostly sunny for the rest of the week.  We will slowly warm back into the mid 80s by Thursday.  Lower humidity next week will make it feel a lot more comfortable.  Overnight low temps near 60 in Columbus and 50s in the outlying areas next week.  A nice break for the air conditioners!  Stay cool the next few days and have a good one!
