"The daily log function enables the quick addition of information related to the menstrual cycle, including current period, flow, symptoms, results from ovulation prediction kits and other elements of fertility tracking," said Apple in a statement.

We won't be as hot today, but temperatures will still end up above average this afternoon. The threat of thunderstorms arrives in the Sierra later today, and that will bring elevated fire danger concerns to that region. Hotter temperatures return for your weekend.
