Hatching BasicsWe cover chickens, ducks, and geese in this episodeTouching on turkeys and quail, the more common poultry species on mosthomesteads.From how to pick your incubator, pick the right eggs to hatch, where to put yourincubator, and how long. There is a lot to know!While we all can read as much information as we can digest, you do gain a lot ofinformation once you have a few hatches under your belt.The difference isn't too vast when it comes to each species we will talk about, butthere are a few.Set up and choosing an incubator:There are SO many.Simple StyrofoamIncubators that have auto turnersCabinet styleHow do you choose? Most of us are going to go middle of the road and invest in anincubator with an auto turner. This allows us to set the eggs and NOT have to turnthen 3-5 times a day.The incubator is mimicking what would be happening if a broody would elect tohatch a clutch, so we cant just set the eggs and walk away for 21-28 days.And then we have to talk about the “air types” inside the incubator.There are basically two types of incubators available, forced-air and still-airincubators. Forced-air incubators have fans that provide internal air circulation. Thecapacity of these units may be very large. The still-air incubators are usually smallwithout fans for air circulation. It is just kind of like a hot box and not as common.Still-air incubators are trickier to use, and it requires precision to set this kind ofincubator. The radiant heat warms up the air, and since the air will not be able tocirculate, it is very crucial to identify the correct placement of the eggs. The warmair tends to not be equal, thus making it harder to achieve a successful hatch.In addition, the setting of still air incubators has to be exact otherwise, temperatureand humidity anomalies might occur inside.Backing up, in order to have a successful hatch you have to focus on two things.Temperature and humidity. Remember we are replicating what it would be like ifthe hen or goose went broody and hatched these eggs on their own.We have talked about it before, how we as humans seem to interfere too much whenit comes to many aspects of homesteading, this is no exception.Chickens 21-days/Lockdown day 18- Temperature 99.5 incubator temp/Humidityaround 45% for first 18 days and then bump up to about 60-65% at lockdown.Ducks 28 days/Lockdown day 25-26 (besides Muscovys)- Temperature99.5/Humidity about 50-55% for the first 25 days and then bump up to about 65-68% at lockdownGeese 28-35 days-/Lockdown 3 day before hatch day- Temperature 99.5 (if not ahair lower- 99.4)/Humidity 50-55% for the first 25 days and then bump up to about65-68% at lockdown.For waterfowl- a cooling period is even more beneficial/crucial than with chickeneggs. Again, this is mimicking the mother bird.Some folks with mist the eggs every day or so, again replicating the mother birdbathing or swimming.Place your incubator in a draft free location.Everyone will have slight variations, we all live in different home environments.This is why we talk about trialing with a couple of eggs, especially if you arehatching eggs that are very special or hard to find.Assisting the hatch?While you are waiting for the poultry to hat

This week's EYE ON NPI is another banger from Sensirion - who has been really rockin' out with great sensors over the last few years - it's the SEN54 Environmental Sensor Node (https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/s/sensirion/sek-sen5x-evaluation-kit), an all-in-one sensor node that combines all of the Sensirion top hits in one. This sensor looks like your everyday dust sensor - just like the SPS30 particulate sensor (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/sensirion-ag/SPS30/9598990), but combines additional sensors inside! There's a few models planned for the SEN5X series - today we're highlighting the SEN54 which has * Particulate Matter - PM2.5 * Humidity and Temperature via SHT40 (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/sensirion-ag/SHT40-AD1B-R3/14322709) * Volatile Organic Compound via SGP41 (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/sensirion-ag/SGP41-D-R4/15652788) (There's also a SEN55 which will include an addition NOx sensor, but it has not been released yet) The sensor uses a sub-processor that will act as a single I2C peripheral to receive commands and send sensor data back. It's a great deal if you want a simple-to-install air quality sensor with all the goodies. There's a 3D model available for mechanical installation, and for connectivity you just need a single JST GHR 6 pin (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/jst-sales-america-inc/GHR-06V-S/807818) cable which has power, and I2C or UART data. Note that the cable is not sold separately so you'll need to acquire the cable from a separate vendor or pick up the full evaluation kit that comes with a couple cables at additional cost. (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/sensirion-ag/SEK-SEN5X/15903862) The real success story here is the libraries that are pre-written and supported by Sensirion that makes getting started very very fast. We were able to wire up the SEN54 to an ESP32 board and run the BLE demo (https://github.com/Sensirion/arduino-ble-gadget) within a few minutes! Using the Sensirion MyAmbience app, (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/sensirion-myambience/id1529131572) we could see instant data show up on our iOS or Android device. Over-all a slick and easy experience. We must say that we're really impressed with how maker-engineer friendly the sensors and firmware development is. This all-in-one sensor board is going to be a popular environmental sensor from folks who really know environmental sensing! Digi-Key has a whole bunch of the Sensirion SEN54 sensors in stock right now for immediate shipment (https://www.digikey.com/short/pn08ff2w) and with same-day shipping, you can order today and be sensing by tomorrow afternoon!

For anyone that has been living under a large boulder for several years, I will name off a few points about Genevieve. She recently competed for Canada at the Tokyo Olympics in the 3000-meter Steeplechase, finishing 11th in some extreme conditions. In 2019 Genevieve won the gold medal for the same event in lima Peru for the Pan American Games. I believe it's safe to say her main focus is on the Steeplechase but Genevievealso runs many different distances and paces staying in shape and keeping motivated. Genevieve goes into detail about what a week looks like for her and how she trains, dizzying to say the least. We also chat about her younger days and what got her started down the running path.Genevieve tells up about the support of her husband, family, teammates and friends and how much of a team effort it really is. We talk about her favourite food and what she likes to do to unwind before a competition. A remarkable story and wonderful person to listen to, you will not want to miss this episode.

There's some good news. There's some places we could actually gain some ground pretty quickly.   Mark: Guys, I've been using this analogy for this. I turned 50 this year and Memorial Day is kind of the unofficial kickoff to summer. It's not actually summer, but everybody just kind of treats it like it is. It's kind of how summer starts. 50 seems like the unofficial kickoff to retirement because it's when you start going, I better get serious. Right? When people turn 50, they start to think about this a little bit more. Catchup contributions is a great way and you can make some serious dent in the savings that you need with some of the things that government allows us to do once you turn 50. Talk to me about that.   John: Once you turn 50, you can do catchup provisions, which if you have a individual or retirement account, AKA IRA, you can put an extra 1,000 into it if you're above the age of 50. If you got yourself and a spouse, it's an extra two grand you can put in there. Most people, where we kind of maximize the strategy is in the 401k where you can actually do an additional 6,500, which is a nice way to not only save, but also reduce your taxes. With the 401k, it's pretty easy because you just contact your payroll provider or go online where your investments are and a couple of clicks and there you go. As we say, once it's done through your payroll, it's easy to just set it and forget it. You just adapt to what you have as your net income moving forward. Definitely once you hit age 50 something, you need to start consider just saving more to hit your goals in retirement.   Mark: Oh, yeah. I mean, $6,500, that's not chicken feed, especially over, let's say, 15 years. If you're 50 and you're planning to retire at 65, that can add up. That can make a nice dent in catching up from being behind. Now, I know you don't have kids to speak of. John, your kids are too little just yet, but kids coming off the payroll, this is something you guys still deal with. You have a lot of clients that, when you get 50 plus, hopefully you're making the most money in your life that you have. Usually that's the case for a lot of people when they're in 50 plus. As my dad used to call us, biscuit snatchers, come off the payroll because we're no longer doing things like the car insurance, cell phone. As a matter of fact, my daughter's out working and doing things as a young adult and she's actually paying the cell phone bill for her mom and I, so how about that?   Nick: This is interesting. I would say that over the last, probably six, seven years, we've seen this get pushed back a little bit where it tends to be the kids start to come off the payroll with clients that are in their early 60s, but it's substantial and it's usually a huge relief. We've got clients that have been able to bump up their savings by 1 to $2,000 a month with kids graduating from college or whatever it may be. It makes a huge difference, whether it's saving more money, whether it's using that additional money to maybe help you achieve the goal of paying your mortgage off by the time you retire. Recapturing those funds is a really, really big deal. When they come off the payroll, just figuring out a way to try to recapture at least 50 to 60% of that could make a huge difference to help somebody catch up.   Mark: John-   John: You like that term biscuit snatcher, don't you?   Mark: You like that?   John: You used that in one of our workshops, so...   Mark: That's what my dad used to call us because he loved his biscuits and I was always running and snatch one and take off with it. You're going to get this at some point, John. Obviously, you do this for your clients. You help them navigate this now, but with your two little ones one day, you'll be having all these extra things and then they'll come off the payroll. I mean, it could be sizeable. You could be paying their car payment, their cell phone, car insurance, maybe some health insurance, so it adds up.   John: I actually just experience some of that because... And my wife works. She's just actually wrapped up her master's program for nurse practitioner, but we had a nanny for that period and that just stopped. That just freed up some cash flow, which was pretty significant for us, but so I know the feeling of it.   Mark: A lot of places and a lot of opportunities for "late bloomers" in retirement to gain ground if you're behind. Another one, guys, is disappearing debt. Maybe you've got some things... Again, we're going to use this analogy of the 50 range, like 50 to 60. You're getting into that pre-retirement stage. You're trying to make sure you've got enough. My wife and I just got our boat paid off, just I think last month or two months ago, something like that. She just paid off her car. Now, she'll probably get another one between now and the time we get to retirement, but still, you get the idea. Credit cards, things like that, that stuff's really starting to dwindle down. [crosstalk 00:05:56].   Nick: Being able to recapture those is a big deal. The car thing is still an interesting thing just from the perspective of growing up up north and you have to deal with rust and the wear and tear of winters have on cars and all that, whereas down here in Florida, they can last so much longer. That's a good example of something that people are able to leverage to help recapture some money to save. Like you said, that mortgage going away, getting that paid off or eliminating that credit card debt. I've had a few clients that in the last 12 to 24 months, they've been able to wipe out debt that they had had from... One was healthcare related and a couple of other things. Being able to redirect that money and that's always the key is to recapture and redirect. That can make a big, big difference.   Mark: Especially the credit card stuff because there's the whole bad debt, good debt thing. Take those high interest things first and get rid of those. Since we mentioned the home, that's another place, so maybe a downsize is on the radar. In this area, a lot of people doing the condo kind of thing. Maybe you don't want to do the big house. Maybe you're moving from up north, Nick, to your point a minute ago. The difference is maybe you want to think about it from a everything needs to be on the first floor because my knees can't handle the stairs standpoint. Either way, prior to recently now... Recently, the housing market's been pretty crazy, so selling it, you might get a lot of money, but you also might pay a lot of money for the next place, but it could be potentially a place where you could capture some more gains as well.   Nick: Replacement cost is high right now, but downsizing can definitely be something. We've had a few clients do that recently. We've also had some clients, and this is a good reminder of the... For example, we've got one client that has had a beach rental that they've been using to rent out Airbnb for a while. They're going to take advantage of the market by selling their primary residence at a pretty high number and then going ahead and no longer renting out the Airbnb rental and moving into that space. That's something that they're able to take advantage of.   Nick: Then not only that, but from a strategy standpoint, there's that capital gains exclusion that's out there where a married couple can exclude up to $500,000 of gains in a property. They're able to exclude the gain in their primary residence and then we went through and reviewed that if they then live in the rental that would've been previously the rental, if they live in that for two years and then sell to maybe shift into another property, that they can exclude the gains in that if they wait the two years. There's some strategy that can get involved in that space to help you on taxes and help you also downsize.   John: One thing with the downsizing, and we've run into this a couple of times where I would say just be careful with downsizing because we've had some scenarios where someone thought they were downsizing and when we started to really evaluate the costs of everything, it really wasn't much of a downsize.   Mark: Good point.   John: It needs to makes sense, especially when you take in account, property taxes here where you can homestead and when you move, you can transfer it over, but sometimes you don't get the biggest bang for your buck. It's just as important to really evaluate the new house. Does it need renovations? Things like that. The maintenance costs, and that's where you always go back to the plan when making these type of decisions because we've seen scenario areas where someone wanted to, we actually evaluate it and it's like that doesn't make sense to do it.   Mark: Another great point. There's so many reasons to consider it. Obviously, there's the financial potential as we're talking about this particular go around, but as I mentioned, it could also be something where you need to simply because you cannot physically handle the house anymore. You got to take a lot of those things into consideration, but right now, we're talking about how to use the money to gain ground. It's just another way you could potentially make up some of that if you're a late bloomer. Then the final one is maybe the twilight career. If you want to find a silver lining through all this pandemic stuff, it's the fact that the world has definitely embraced telecommuting from work, or just all kinds of different really, jobs and things that you could do remotely. Maybe you do need to make some ground and maybe you can't do the full corporate job or whatever it was that you were doing as your main career, but a twilight career could be there. You could be selling your crocheting stuff on Etsy or whatever. You could be consulting just from your kitchen.   Nick: We're in an era where workers have a little bit more power right now post and I guess still on the tail end of COVID. We've had clients that have been able to... Sometimes we call it the make my day strategy where they're important to the company. They know it and they go through and they negotiate. They've been working from home, at least for a portion and they've still been productive, so they've gone to their employer and said, "Hey, if I can work from home three days a week, I'll continue to stay here for X amount of time," or just using some of the stuff that's going on as leverage because companies are having a really difficult time hiring. It's become very, very competitive. We've had some clients go ahead and use that to their leverage. Then like I said, it's just they take advantage of that until they're no longer happy and then they exit.   John: We've seen a lot of people a little different where they start working part-time and really start getting into hobbies that they enjoy for income, photography, event planning, things like that. There's definitely a lot of different avenues you can go in this period of time here because we've seen quite a few people churn hobbies into income.   Mark: That could be a great way to not only offset the shortfall you may have or even whatever the case might be, but it's also just something to do. I mean, just keeps you active so why not "double dip"? Get something out of it. You're getting some activity, something you enjoy, but also adding a little something the to the income levels.   Nick: I was going to also mention that where one thing that we have found from some people is not having a purpose or a routine has been very difficult.   Mark: Oh, yeah.   Nick: Some people handle it better than others, but in general, people need some sort of purpose. Some people are able to take that extra time, spend it with kids, grandkids, travel, do all these different things and they're very comfortable or they have an active social life and it works out well. A lot of people got a lot of those interactions via work, and so not having them anymore, spending an extra 40 hours a week with their spouse, as much as they love them can be a little bit much. Whether it's volunteering, whether it's finding something, just having an open mind and looking for something that fulfills you and gives you purpose is a really big deal.   Mark: You got to have something to retire to as well, otherwise you just turn into a couch tater and you don't want to do that. Those are so some places where you can make up some ground if you are a late bloomer in retirement, meaning basically you feel like you started too late or you don't have enough put away. Of course, how do you know? Well, you know by getting a plan put together to see if you are even behind because again, you might not be. Reach out to the guys, to the team at PFG Private Wealth. Stop by the website, pfgprivatewealth.com. Get scheduled to come in for a consultation and find out, first of all, even if you are behind and if you are, then you can look at some of these options and some of these opportunities that we highlighted today on how to make up that ground, pfgprivate wealth.com. That is pfgprivatewealth.com. Don't forget to subscribe to the podcast while you're there on Apple, Google, iHeart, Spotify, whatever platform you like to use. You could find it all at the main website, pfgprivate wealth.com.   Mark: While you're there, you can drop a line as well and we take those from time to time here on the show. Let's wrap up with an email question from Elizabeth. She says, "Guys, I have a pension fund from a previous job in a different state. It's been sitting there for years, but I do have the option to take the lump sum and invest the money myself, or just leave it there and get the monthly pension once I retire. Thoughts?   John: This is coming up quite a bit lately with pensions offering these lump sum payouts for participants. It really important to evaluate if you take that lump sum, what type of income could you expect from it on a, basically, lifetime basis. What goes into that is really your risk tolerance. What could you expect to achieve from a rate of return based on how much risk you want to take? Again, you want to look at this from a conservative standpoint. What we've done in the past with clients, we might compare it to maybe doing their own type of guaranteed income stream through some other financial vehicles and see is it similar and maybe provide some more flexibility they're comfortable with, the financial health of the current pension. I wish there was an easy answer for this, a yes or no, but as always, it depends on your plan and your situation, and what works for you and, and your family if you have beneficiaries. There's a lot of different factors that go into this.   Nick: Testing it through the plan's so important, especially John alluded to the beneficiary aspect. For example, we've had a fair amount of clients that maybe they're single, whether it's widow, divorce, whatever, and their beneficiaries are their kids. The thought of having worked for a company for a prolonged period of time and what would be a substantial pension. Their kids not being able to benefit from that at all if they were to pass away early doesn't sit well with them. They'll look for alternatives. There are a ton of factors that go into that, but comparing and using realistic variables when you're making those comparisons is really important.   Mark: I mean, it's one of those things where a lot of times, you do have more controlling options if you take the money in lump sum and do it yourself, but it's not the right fit for everybody. Definitely a great question. Reach out and call the guys and have a one on one conversation or share some more details for sure. 813-286-7776 is how you can get ahold of them if you've got questions of your own, 813-286-7776 or again, stop by the website, pfgprivate wealth.com. That's all our time this week here on the podcast. We appreciate you guys as always, for John and Nick. I'm your host, Mark and we'll see you next time here on Retirement Planning Redefined.

Fire on Pilot Mountain in North Carolina driven by wind, humidity, and drought (SPECIAL REPORT)

A large, wind-driven fire is burning on Pilot Mountain, located northwest of Winston-Salem in North Carolina. 200 to 300 acres have burned, according to local reports, and what you're seeing here is new imagery from the Carolina Weather Group's Dan Whittaker, who spent the day on the ground there Sunday. By nightfall Sunday, the fire was climbing up and towards the knob. You can see that here in this new post from Dan. Dan will continue to send back photos and videos just as firefighters continue to try and get this fire under control. The weather is not making things easier for firefighters. Dry, windy conditions have allowed the fire to grow to this size and things don't get immediately better. A cold front means winds gusty around 20 mph Monday will continue to make fire containment a challenge. You'll remember, we're dramatically behind on rain. Here's a look at the drought monitor. Combine that with low humidity, and you have prime conditions for fires. You'll notice all of our video is recorded from the ground. That's because a no-fly zone has been issued by the FAA. Please, don't fly any drones in the area. Firefighters are using aircraft to aid in the firefighting efforts. This same fire danger exists across much of the Carolinas. Now is not the time to be burning leaves or starting a campfire. Matter of fact, I'm holding the latest adversary here from the National Weather Service and they warn, in no uncertain terms, "There is an increased threat of fires growing out of control on Monday due to a combination of low humidity around 30 percent or lower during the afternoon, northwest winds gusting above 30 mph, and dry fuels" - meaning leaves, brush, grasses and more. The cause of the Pilot Mountain fire is not yet known. Luckily the Pilot Mountain State Park campground was safely evacuated without any injuries. The park remains closed for the immediate future. We'll get to provide updates here on the Carolina Weather Group YouTube channel. You'll also be notified of a new episode for our weekly Wednesday night show. Our guest this week: James Spann, host of Weather Brains and chief meteorologist at ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, Alabama. For now, from Charlotte, I'm James Brierton.

Today is not one of my better days. The humidity is up and it is reminding me of why I do not live in the tropics. Everything else I can reasonably handle but just not the humidity. And so, just before the humidity really started to hit at around 9am, I made sure I had already done most of my baguazhang sets. But there is still one form I still must do, but I am wavering on it because on the days that I do it, I have committed myself to doing 15 sets per day. So it is 15 sets or nothing, and my willpower is slowly crumbling. On the upside of all this humidity is that I am slowly getting a craving for Malaysian or Singaporean food. But, then again, to go out and get some would require a bit of effort on my part that would drain some of my energy beyond what I am willing to accept. But (and yes, this is another counter but…) I am also willing to adapt to the changes brought on by the weather, and just see where it takes me on my baguazhang journey: What I cannot do physically, I will do mentally with a bit of baguazhang revision. Even I don't know everything. There is a lot of theory around baguazhang that requires a practitioner to sit down, open a manual and study. Traditionally in China, martial arts was a gentleman's pursuit. And as such, it meant it had scholarly endeavours attached to it. Without it, martial arts in the wrong hands would degenerate into nothing more than thuggery. Every baguazhang master taught this. If not through theory, then through technique. And if that didn't sink in, then through the legends about them. With me, I do it through my podcast, qigong class, and publishing six easy-to-read books around the topic of baguazhang. And now I am learning how to transmute this wisdom through just being in close physical proximity to me. This skill is something I allude to in my sixth baguazhang book about jingong titled “The Baguazhang Jin of War”.

0:02Good morning everyone. It is August and then it's in the late morning and today is finally here an exciting day because it is extremely humid outside and the dew points are really really high. This is a rarity here in the Chicago area. Right now the state of Illinois is the most human state in the country and we're seeing dew point, the maximum dew point in the past 12 hours was a sauna like 84 degrees. It's reporting on one website. Dark Sky says that parts of the Chicago area currently have a dew point of 81 degrees. The National Weather Service weather app says the dew point 78 degrees. Other sources say that the dew point the official dew point in Chicago 76 degrees. Midway according to one side says the dew point 74 degrees. So we certainly been a hard time trying to figure out what the dew point is here in the Chicago area. But either way, probably the strongest indicator that we actually do have dew points currently in the Upper 70s and even low 80s low 80s. Imagine that low at dew point is from the National Weather Service Forecast discussion, where it says the dew points today will remain in the Upper 70s and low 80s remain meaning they have gone up into the upper 70s and low 80s accuweather.com is reporting maximum dew points to be occurring late this afternoon at 79 degrees, and they have their models a little bit off for right now though what do they say the dew point at noon will be 71 degrees, but it's already in the Upper 70s. But either way, perhaps there are places in Chicago where the dew point is only in the low 70s. And perhaps each weather station is reporting a different viewpoints. But by late afternoon dew points will be in the upper 70s. And the National Weather Service has pointed out that there will even be some locations with dew points in the low 80s. This is as high as it can possibly get. The record for Chicago has a dew point of 83 degrees. That's the highest dew point ever recorded in Chicago. So we are approaching record territory here. And what's amazing about this is that it's not just we're approaching record territory, but it also the highest dewpoints in the country are occurring right over the Chicago area. Now South Bend Indiana also is having very high dew points a little bit less than the Chicago area. dew points between 75 and 76 degrees. dew points will likely go a little bit higher as the day progresses. He didn't afternoon he didn't disease top out between 95 and 105. For South Bend, Indiana. He didn't he's expected to be around 110 area wide in the Chicago area. Heat advisories in effect for Chicago possibly for South Bend as well until 7pm this evening. Now the one variable that is might mess up this heat is if thunderstorms develop this afternoon. As of now the thunderstorms are expected to hold off until this evening. Some of those storms could be severe, especially with damaging wind 55 to 65 mile per hour wind gusts with an AccuWeather max of 80 miles per hour. There also could be an isolated tornado and large hail. But the main thing will be the damaging winds with these storms. And it's unbelievable the amount of humidity obviously the amount of humidity these storms are dealing with is the highest in the world. This is as intense as it gets really probably on par with the monsoon in India. Just about you know for a week the dew points for between 80 and 81 degrees in New Delhi, India. We're seeing two points here that are places currently dew points are in the low 80s. And parts of Illinois as we speak. And the maximum dew point I don't know if this is official or unofficial was 84 degrees within the past 12 hours here in Illinois. dew points elsewhere in the country it is very difficult to find an 80 degree dew point unless you go down into Galveston, Texas or Corpus Christi, Texas, otherwise plenty of Upper 70s. Lots of Upper 70s. For dew points. There's an 80 degree dew point here and there in the Iowa area.4:16dew points of 80 degrees and temperatures feel approximately 20 degrees warmer than what they actually are when the temperature is 90 degrees. Here in Chicago. I think it's safe to say that you know the other week we had dew points. Tom skilling reported a dew point of 78 degrees here in Chicago. If you look in the dark sky weather map was 76 degrees. It makes sense once one thing happens in a summer the pattern continues and we see those dew points again it would certainly make sense to see dew points between 76 and 78 degrees today. that pushes the hidden disease at 16 degrees warmer it is dew point 78 would make the temperature field 16 degrees warmer than it actually is afternoon high 92 degrees heat index 108 But AccuWeather is calling for 79 degrees, which would make the temperature feel 18 degrees warmer than they actually are, which would put the heat index at 110. And, and the National Weather Service is doing the exact same thing because they're calling for heat indices around 110. That's the peak index this afternoon, around 110 degrees. And will I buy, we'll have to see whether dew points are in the low 70s, upper 70s? That's a question right now, depending on where you are, but by late this afternoon, we'll get a real feel people who want to feel what it what it's like in India, and places like that, although we're not going to have the excessive heat temperatures only 90 degrees. And I see all the clouds, who knows if it's even going to make it that hot. But we will be having sauna like conditions later on today, for sure. In parts of the Chicago area, at least parts of the area are already experiencing sauna like conditions, and this is borderline record territory. And for the state of Illinois, there could be it could be there have been records broken already. In regards to the humidity, I prepared for extremely strong thunderstorms. The amount of energy these storms have to work with, obviously is off the charts. There's many, many other variables that go into the to the development of a thunderstorm and those other variables perhaps are not off the charts. So but the dewpoints certainly, I wouldn't say they're off the charts, but they're very high up on that chart. And do humidities on temperature as a form of energy, but so is humanity. That's also a form of energy. And it's not just temperature, not just air temperature, which is the form of energy. dew points also are both of them transmit energy. They both can energize the thunderstorm, so we're dealing with both high air temperatures and high dewpoints. Therefore, there certainly is room to say that we could be getting some strong storms later on today. I wish everybody a wonderful day. And the heat is here through Thursday. By the way it's not going to be as humid but continued hot and very humid. Just not extremely humid through Thursday. He didn't disease 100 to 106 each day through Thursday. Another extreme heatwave is developing up in the Pacific Northwest record he'd no doubt about it. Temperatures will be breaking the record by at least five degrees for many cities. 105 for Portland, Oregon later on this week. What 98 degrees for Seattle, Washington that will be breaking the old record of 92 degrees. These 90s and hundreds go all the way up into southern Canada. Just boiling hot air up in the Pacific Northwest. I wish everybody a great day. Have a wonderful week.This transcript was generated by https://otter.

The information presented in the 2nd part helps develop a greater appreciation for the information being presented in the 1st part. One can therefore argue that this podcast is out of order. Perhaps it is for non-weather enthusiasts but for weather enthusiasts all of the excitement is in the 1st part. A weather enthusiast can turn this podcast off after 12 minutes. However some might find the 2nd part a little entertaining.
