For those of you baking in the center of the country today, fear not — a cool-down is coming. The NAM is predicting highs only reaching the 90s tomorrow in areas where it's reached the 100s for the last few days. As always, relief comes with a price: severe weather is expected both tomorrow and Thursday.

On a personal note, I've been crushed with final exams this week, so my apologies for the lack of posts today. Things should be back to normal tomorrow or Thursday. Thanks for your continued support of the proliferation of weather geekiness in the Gawker Media empire.
