Today's Roundup
Good afternoon, neighbors.

The Wenatchee Valley could see its first triple-degree temperatures of the season tomorrow. How are you beating the heat? Join the conversation here.

“It’s been so unseasonably cool for most of the summer, so this is going to be the first really hot weather we’ve seen.” Mike Turner, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said Friday. “It might come as a bit of a shock to some people.”

Residents should stay hydrated and take normal heat precautions like avoiding long hours in the sun or leaving dogs or children in the car, even with the windows down.

Those choosing to beat the heat by spending the day on the water should be mindful that water temperatures are still cool given the mild season so far, according to Turner.

“This will be a shock to the system,” said Turner. You can find the full article here.

Opinion | Just come out and say it WIAA: There won't be prep football this fall
But even we can see the writing on the wall. So, let’s call it what it is; we’ll be lucky to get out on a soccer pitch to cover girls’ soccer in the fall — classified as a moderate-risk sport. Consider it a victory if we are. But (high-risk) football? No chance. Everyone needs to get that pie-in-the-sky notion out of their head. READ MORE
