Asphalt 7 is the latest weather-related heatwave to hit the Midwest, and it has caused widespread gridlock and power outages.
Here are five things you need to know about the heatwave.1.
What is asphalt?
Asphalt is a type of asphalt used in roads, building and other building materials.
The average thickness of asphalt varies widely from one state to the next, and asphalt is made from different minerals, including iron, copper, nickel, zinc and aluminum.
Asphalt has an average of 8.5 layers of various types of clay or sand.
As a result, asphalt is more porous than other forms of asphalt.
In addition, it is made of materials that are usually impermeable to water, such as concrete and asphalt shingle.
As the weather warms, these impurities can become visible.2.
What are the different types of asphalt?
The various types include asphalt shales (which are made from sand), aggregate asphalt (which is made up of aggregates of other materials such as clay, sand, and concrete), and asphalt mixtures (which include both asphalt shale and aggregate asphalt).3.
Where are the heat waves coming from?
The Midwest has experienced a string of high-intensity heat waves since December.
As of Thursday morning, there were 14 heat waves statewide, with several in parts of Illinois and Iowa, and a few in the southern half of the state.
These heat waves were the third-most intense in the Midwest this year, with the most intense occurring in May and June.4.
What’s the outlook for the summer?
As of now, the heat wave is still not fully over, with temperatures continuing to increase, and more heat waves are expected in the coming months.
The National Weather Service expects the heatwaves to last through June, with a total of nine days with temperatures at least 80 degrees F (27 degrees C).
The National Climatic Data Center says the Midwest has already surpassed the previous record high for hottest temperature on June 21, with an average temperature of 81.2 degrees F (-26.1 degrees C) at the town of La Crosse, Wisconsin.5.
How do I prepare for the heat?
Be sure to bring enough water to keep your car from overheating and to keep cool.
There is no substitute for having proper air conditioning, and people with respiratory conditions should stay inside for a while, especially during the heat.
