Severe thunderstorm watch issued at 650pm. That sounds good!

It will be downgraded to a heat advisory. heat warning = heat index of at least 105 for more than 3 hours per day on 2 consecutive days, or heat index of at least 115 for any period. heat advisory = heat index of at least 105 (but less than 115) for less than 3 hours per day or if nighttime lows are above 80 for 2 consecutive days.

So tell me what is different at seven? It is just going to be hot again tomorrow. And the next day. And the next day. And the next day. They should simply extend the heat warning until....labor day.
