WE HAVE A COUPLE OF DAYS LEFT AND IT’S ALMOST SEPTEMBER. 65.4% OF DAYS HAVE BEEN ABOVE AVERAGE. IF YOU WERE CURIOUS THE LAST FEW DAYS, WE RACKED UP SOME HIGHS. THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE, 72.4 DEGREES. IT’S 69 DEGREES WITH A CLOUDY SKY. NY THE HEAT INDEX, WE DON’T HAVE ONE TODAY EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE THE HUMIDITY IN THE AIR AND NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING A HEAT INDEX. SEVENTY, GREENSBURG; 66, INDIANA AND BUTLER. THIS IS STORM TRACKER. IT BRINGS IN A COUPLE OF SHOWERS AT TIMES AND THAT IS THE BEST CHANCE FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN AND THUNDER. WE ANIMATE THE CLOCK INTO 1 A.M. YOU WILL NOTICE THE POCKETS OF YELLOW SHOWING UP AREAS IN ORANGE REPRESENT WHERE THE RAIN IS COMING DOWN MORE HEAVILY AND IN INTENSITY. THE RAIN PUSHES EAST AND ALLEGHENY COUNTY DEALING WITH YELLOW S AND ORANGES. THE MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN SHOWING UP.

WITH TIME, THAT PUSHES TO THE EAST. WE’LL SEE GRADUAL CLEARING TAKES PLACE FROM WEST TO EAST. I TEASED IT TO A LOOK OF SUNSHINE. IN THE MEANTIME, WE LOOK AT THE RAINFALL FORECAST. THE GREENS ARE SHOWING A HALF AN INCH TO PERHAPS ONE INCH AND YOU GET INTO THE YELLOW COLORS. THAT IS UPWARDS TO TWO INCHES. I DON’T THINK EVERYONE IS LOOKING AT THE RAIN, BUT IT’S CONSIST ON THE LOCAL HI HEAVY POCKETS OF RAINFALL. IT COULD RACK UP QUICKLY AND GOING TO BE A DAMP COMMUTE FOR YOU, ESPECIALLY INTO THE MORNING HOURS TOMORROW. THE LOW TEMPERATURES SPOT MID- 60s, THE RAIN ENDING FROM WEST TO EAST TOMORROW, CUT THE GRASS, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, LOOKS GOOD FOR THAT AND LIVES IN THE AFTERNOON AND BREAKING OUT TO SUNSHINE. I HAVE A SPECIAL LOOK AT SOMETHING THAT IS GOING ON NOW. IT’S DORIAN, A TROPICAL STORM AND I WANTED TO UPDATE YOU ON THIS. IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S GOING TO APPROACH FLORIDA. IT WENT THROUGH BARBADOS AND SAINT LUCIA. YOU CAN SEE IT’S NOW WEST OF SAINT LUCIA AND CONTINUES ON NORTHWESTERLY TRACK THROUGH THE CARIBBEAN. INTO THE NORTHWEST, IT LOOKS LIKE IT APPROACHES THE EAST COAST OF FLORIDA INTO SUNDAY AND THAT IS 70 MILES PER HOUR WINDS AT THAT POINT, WHICH WOULD BE SHY OF HURRICANE STRENGTH. AND THIS IS SOMETHING WE’RE GOING TO KEEP OUR EYE ON. IF YOU HAD ANY PLANTS DO TRAVEL HERE TO FLORIDA AS WE HEAD INTO THE LABOR DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND, KEEP AN EYE ON IT. AND THE WEEKEND IS ALWAYS IN VIEW. THURSDAY, FRIDAY, AND SATURDAY LOOKING GOOD AS WELL. >>>IF YOU HEAD ON THE ROAD TODAY, A GOOD CHANCE YOU WILL SEE A DOG HANGING ITS HEAD OUT OF A CAR WINDOW. HOW THAT CAN BE BAD F . >>>IF YOU LET YOUR DOG HANG THEIR HEAD OUT OF THE CAR WINDOW, IT MIGHT BE BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH, ACCORDING TO A NEW STUDY. THE RESEARCHERS SAID THE DRIVER’S HEART RATES WERE HIGHER WHEN DOGS WERE ROAMING FREE IN THE CAR. ADD TO, THAT THE RISK OF GETTING INTO AN ACCIDENT WAS MORE THAN DOUBLED. >>>AN OKLAHOMA MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER IS GIVING HER STUDENTS A VALUABLE LESS TON TO KICK OFF THE SCHOOL YEAR AND ASKED THE STUDENTS TO WRITE DOWN SOME OF THE THINGS THEY WERE STRUGGLING WITH IN THEIR LIVES AND LEAVE IT IN THE BAG AT THE DOOR AND READ SOME OF THEIR ANONYMOUS NOTES OUT LOUD SO STUDENTS KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DEALING WITH. THINGS LIKE ABUSE, DIVORCE, AND DRUGS. >>IF IT AT THE DOOR MEANS DON’T LET THAT PAST DEFINE YOU. LET IT, YOU KNOW, IT HAPPENED AND MAKES YOU WHO YOU ARE AND DON’T DWELL ON IT FOREVER AND PERFECT. YOU HAVE TO MOVE PAST IT. >>THE POST ABOUT THE ACTIVITY GOT THOUSANDS OF SHARINGS ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
