(KPLR) – In Monday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, JB looks at the heat in the St. Louis forecast.

The heat is on its way. There is no escaping it this time of year unless you have a way to stay cool.

You may be surprised to know more people die from heat related illness than tornado related injuries.

Weather Fatalities

It breaks my heart whenever we cover a heat related death. It's usually someone who was afraid to turn on the air conditioning.

If you know anyone in that type of situation I hope you can convince them to run the AC this summer. It could save their life.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
