Piles of small, pea-size hail also covered the ground white in the southwestern suburbs. Higher humidity values through the weekend will likely slow the evaporation process and allow the trails to remain wet for longer than normal.
Our first taste of summer heat and humidity lingers through Sunday. As you take the bike out this weekend it's important to remember to stay hydrated. With dewpoints in the 70s and temperatures in the 90s the body can't cool itself easily. Heat-related illnesses tend to increase in conditions like this. Know the signs.
The excessive heat doesn't last long. Much cooler and more comfortable air arrives next week. Relief comes in the form of a cold front Sunday night-Monday but this front will also produce more rain across our area trails. Be on the lookout for occasional trails closures.
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
