Precious little rain in the forecast this week. Only light showers early Wednesday morning. This bodes well for riding dirt and for farmers working in the field for harvest. The end to the growing season is near, however, as a widespread frost and/or freeze is anticipated Thursday morning.
Thunderstorms (and heavier rain) may return by the weekend and early next week. This will only help 2016 in what should be one of the wettest years on record. So far the Twin Cities have recorded 33.57" of precipitation this year. Not top ten wettest yet, but close. Wettest years ever? 40.15" in 1911.
Cycling Paths That Sparkle
Imagine this, illuminating bike paths around Lake Calhoun on a busy Saturday evening in summer. A team in northern Poland designed paved pathways with synthetic material that can produce a glowing light for about 10 hours after absorbing a day's worth of solar radiation.
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.
