The National Weather Service is predicting our area’s first heatwave of the season this weekend with the temperature lakeside in the 80s and reaching 90 inland. Kewaunee County Emergency Management Director Tracy Nollenberg has a hot weather safety checklist if you are going to be out working or playing this weekend.
Nollenberg says the best plan is to stay inside with the air conditioning on. If you don’t have air conditioning, Nollenberg suggests the lower levels of your home are usually cooler. She reminds people to check up on elderly friends or relatives, especially if they don’t have air conditioning in their home.
