If you plan on enjoying your last gasp of summer this weekend, make sure you take the proper precautions. The National Weather Service is predicting weather in the mid-90s for the Green Bay area and upper 80s to low 90s for Door and Kewaunee counties for Sunday and Monday. The warm front is greeting visitors and residents alike for one of the busiest weekends of the summer which includes farmers markets up and down the peninsula and Sister Bay Marina Fest. With how crowded it is expected to be for what many visitors use for their last hurrah of summer before the school year hits its stride, Katie Van Laanen from the Door County Public Health Department says it is important for people to have a plan on how they are going to take care of themselves while enjoying all of the activities around them.
Blackledge says if going to the beach is an option, you may want to look ahead too. Earlier this week, Murphy Park Beach and Ephraim Beach were closed at least temporarily due to elevated bacteria levels. No beaches were closed as of Friday morning, by Van Laanen says you still should be on the lookout for algae blooms due to the high temperatures.
