Here’s your Baristaville Weather Advisory for Monday, August 10.
8 am to 10 am. If you want to sit on the porch and answer email, walk your dog, jog in Brookdale or weed the garden, do it now. It will be brutally hot and humid shortly.
10 am to 4 pm. Now’s the time to take advantage of that pool membership you’ve sunk hundreds of dollars into and only used twice this summer. No official heat advisory in Essex County, but there are warnings all around us.
4 pm to midnight. Periodic bursts of thunder and lightning of biblical proportions. Trees and branches down. Dozens of messages from Clever Commute detailing NJ Transit’s inevitable series of evening delays. Remember to take pictures of all of this and send them to us or post them on our Flickr page.
Alternatively, skip the porch and the pool and sit in your air-conditioned office in midtown all day. Good luck with the evening commute.
