FURCAST: Hot cars & pets do not mix

Clear the Shelters

We just made it through the hottest stretch of 2020 so far, and while the slightly cooler temperatures have been great, it is still hot – especially inside a car.

Cars are a heat trap. Here is how hot it can get inside a car with the windows rolled up and no cold air moving.

We will have more tips in our Furcast segment each Thursday in August on KETK News At Ten.
