Rowan weather: Hot, bad air, intense sun

It’s going to be another hot, steamy day with code orange air quality, meaning the air is unhealthy for sensitive groups, children, active adults and those with heart or respiratory diseases, including asthma. Wednesday will be much the same.
The temperature will climb under mostly sunny skies to 92 degrees, with a 30 percent chance of precipitation. Tonight, the chance of rain is 20 percent, with a low around 69.
For Wednesday, sunny and 92 again, with another code orange air day predicted. Wednesday night will be around 69, with no mention of rain.
Look for isolated afternoon showers on Thursday, another sunny and hot day, with a high of 92. The chance of showers goes to 30 percent Thursday night, when the low, again, will be around 69.
Friday, just a repeat of Thursday, a high of 92, a low of 70.
The weekend will be hot and steamy, too, with another high of 92 on Saturday under mostly sunny skies, and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms; low will be around 70.
There’s a slight change for Sunday — only 90 degrees, with a 30 percent chance of rain. Sunday night will be around 69.
And Monday’s high will be 89, with partly sunny skies and a 30 percent chance of showers and storms.
Remember to protect your pets and water your plants. Also be careful during prolonged time outdoors. Drink plenty of water and use sunscreen. The UV index is very high, a 10. Remember that bright surfaces can double the UV exposure, so be sure to protect yourself and your family. Wear shirts and hats when outdoors and seek shade as much as possible.
