Local Workers Enjoy 'Cool' Day

July 27, 2005--Posted at 5:00 pm CDT

 

Jonesboro, AR--After several days of intense heat, Region 8 is finally cooling down to temperatures below the average for the year.  On Wednesday, most of the region saw highs struggle to hit 85, and dew points plunged to under seventy degrees for the first time in weeks.

The change in the atmosphere made it feel a little better for workers braving the heat.  One local electrician said homes being built could see temperatures more than twenty degrees hotter than the temperature outside.  He also added they had recently sent one of their workers home due to excessive heat exhaustion, brought on by the extreme temperatures.

 

Chief Meteorologist Chad Watson says the area should enjoy below normal temperatures for the remainder of the week.
