90's Arrive Right On Cue With Summer

The hottest weather we've seen in awhile ushered in the official start of summer Wednesday.

Temperatures we're well into the 90's Wednesday and expected to stay there for several more days.

While some called it hot, others know it's just the beginning of what the next few months will hold.

Experts want to remind people , whether you're out working or just out enjoying the summer sun, to always be mindful of how the summer heat can affect your body. Make sure to drink plenty of water, wear sunscreen, and if your working, make sure to take plenty of breaks to prevent getting dehydrated.

It can also be helpful to avoid the hottest parts of the day, generally from 10:00 a.m. until mid-afternoon by seeking out air conditioning. If you don't have air conditioning, using a fan to keep cool is important.

If you're out working in the sun, keeping covered as much as possible, making sure you stay hydrated, drinking plenty of water.
