About a third of an inch of rain fell in Mt. Shasta during a thunderstorm Tuesday evening, July 24, cooling things a bit after a third consecutive day of triple digit high temperatures, according to the Department of Water Resources weather station on Alma Street.
Since July 11, the high temperature has gone above 100 in Mount Shasta 10 out of 14 days, and it wasn't much below that the other 4 days.
A heat advisory issued by the National Weather Service is in place through July 26 at 11 p.m. After that, daily high temperatures are forecast to be in the mid-90s into the weekend.
A Heat Advisory, according to NWS, "means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. This could create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors."
