A little relief from the heat is in our near term forecast.
The National Weather Service is predicting some rain for tomorrow. The rain is expected to reduce the heat and humidity.
It is possible a shower or thunderstorms could pop up later today.
In the meantime, the heat stays with us.
Batavia’s high temperature yesterday reached 93-degrees.
The high for all of Western New York yesterday was recorded here in Genesee County, at Bethany, 95-degrees.
The Emergency Room is a place most of us do not want to visit.
One of the reasons: the wait.
On average, the injured and sick wait 15 minutes for first treatment at American Emergency Rooms.
Batavia’s United Memorial Medical Center, however, has cut that wait by more than half.
Nurse Manager Bonnie Bezon says UMMC’s average ER wait is 5 minutes, 47 seconds.
Bezon says patients with breathing trouble or chest pain are always served first and do not figure into that average. Read more on this story HERE.
Police in Orleans County are investigating a rash of vehicle break-ins.
Most of the break-ins were reported early yesterday along Ridge Road in the Town of Gaines and Fancher Road in the Town of Murray.
Authorities say in every case investigated so far, the car has been left un-locked.
Their advice: lock your car, and don’t leave your property inside.
