SIOUX FALLS, SD -
This week's hot and humid weather has many people coming up with creative ways to beat the heat and some are wondering what this hot August means for the future.
Exercise for the Bost family is part of their daily routine. But with the heat rising and temperatures reaching unbearable heights, this family is looking for ways to beat the heat especially with their two-year-old daughter.
"Get out in the morning before it's too hot, a kiddy pool in the backyard and the Pioneer Spray Park; we just discovered that. So, we have been there a couple of days in a row," Jenny Bost said.
And with these recent temperatures, this family realizes no matter what they do, there is no escaping this late summer heat.
"We were already sweating, so we assumed it was only going to get hotter," Bert Bost said.
"It kind of tricked us because it got cool and then it got hot again, so I will be glad when this goes away," Jenny said.
With the rest of this week’s forecast continuing with very warm temperatures, it leaves many wondering what this means for fall.
"I think once we get out of this heat mass, so-to-speak, we will start to see a return to normal temperatures as we go through about mid-September," KELOLAND Meteorologist Scot Mundt said.
But with no rain in sight, it could mean something else as well.
"If we get all this heat and no rain then we will get lower dew points, lower humidity and we will get an early frost in September and that's probably something we don't expect this time of year," Mundt said.
So for the Bost family, for at least the next week, this means getting creative until this extreme heat passes.
