COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Just in time for the official arrival of the summer of 2012 this week a heat wave. The summer solstice comes around on Wednesday at 7:20 p.m. and high temperatures the next couple of days in the mid 90’s along with the rising humidity will take the heat index above the century mark.
You should remember that more Americans suffer heat related deaths each year than from any other weather disasters. Some much needed rain fell in the area Sunday morning, although not nearly enough after the dry conditions of the past six weeks. The official precipitation measurement yesterday for Coldwater was only fourteen-hundredths of an inch rain.
