Not surprisingly, the middle of July in our hottest time of the year on average. Right on cue, high heat and humidity on Saturday will make it feel more like 100 degrees. Very uncomfortable on the bike despite the breeze.
When conditions get this hot and humid, the evaporation of sweat off your skin is reduced such that the body can't readily cool itself. The National Weather Service in the Twin Cities recommends limiting the duration of outdoor activities, like cycling, to two hours or less.
Thunderstorms are likely Friday night and again into Saturday afternoon. Some could be severe on Saturday. Be weather alert! Trail openings questionable in areas that receive a good downpour.
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.
