HOP ALONG HEAT. Strong southerly winds will bring one more day of extreme warmth to the region before a cool front rolls in overnight and sends the steamy weather south. We look ahead at that and what’s to come in today’s Three Things.

WOODY. The Woodhouse’s toad is commonly found this time of year in lit backyards where it feasts on nocturnal insects like crickets and other bugs. The toad is named for Samuel Woodhouse, 19th Century surgeon, explorer and naturalist, who also has a scrub jay named in honor of him.
