So far this month we've had zero days with a completely clear sky...zero! To compliment the clouds, rain has fallen 7 out of the past 10 days. Ticks must be lovin' this wet weather!
June is, historically, the wettest (and most severe) month out of the entire year. The probability of measurable rain on any given day is 40 percent.
True to form, rain has again arrived by midweek. A cluster of thunderstorms, known as an MCS or Mesoscale Convective System, will slide in from South Dakota to give us another heavy dousing of rain Wednesday morning.

Bike Walk Week
Is it just me or are more people out and about? It might just be because it's summer (duh) OR because this week is Bike Walk Week! I was up at the butt crack of dawn picking up some friends at the airport and I was amazed at the number of people biking or walking before 6am! From the hard core road warrior to the leisurely stroller, there were a ton of people out early and it made me feel good that I live in one of the most active and healthy cities in America.
Just in case you needed a little extra motivation getting out the door (I know I sometimes need a kick in the pants!) here are a good 13 reasons you should get on the bike.
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.
