METRIC MIKEY’S WEDENSDAY WORD

Humidex

It’s been hot in Columbus. But apparently it has also been super hot and HUMID in Ottawa, Canada where my co-workers live.

As I’ve embraced the high 80’s degree weather with my air conditioning blasting and the pool now open, my coworkers to the north are not so much appreciating the heat. It’s been about 31 Celsius (88 degrees here) with a HUMIDEX of 34c (94 degrees).

Humidex – what in the world- Why that is Canada’s heat index or as they explain it, the humidity index.

Not only do I love the fact that that my weather app on my phone is now set to Celsius, I think I am going to start calling heat index, ‘humidex’ and see what kind of looks I get.

Happy Humidex!
