Common summer viruses

Contrary to popular belief, there are still plenty of viruses going around, and two in particular are especially common even with nice weather. In the summer we don't usually have to contend with influenza -- that is mainly a winter illness -- and it is true that viruses that cause colds are more prominent in the winter. Here's what to watch for.

 Weather: More rain 

From Brand Roux: Highs will be in the mid 80s feeling like low 90s and we are all encouraged not to add too much pollution driving, doing lawn care, or working so car pool or ride your bike and avoid using gas powered lawn equipment. Scattered rain and thundershowers will mainly be near the Ohio Border and south through the afternoon, but we should see a few storms popping with the heat of the day.

Here's the extended forecast.
