Yes! Summer weather is back in Tri-Cities!

No more running the car to defrost the windows. No more shoveling yourself out of the drive-way.

But don't let the excitement get in the way of safety. More pedestrians are going to be hitting the sidewalks, crosswalks, and parks.

Be sure to look out for them! They may not always be looking for you. (Texting, cough.)

The other biggie to be aware of is sun glare. This one goes to my Richland and West Richland peeps. That sunlight seems to hit you dead in the eyes when you take the highway to Richland. Wear sunglasses, keep your windows clean and be alert!
