...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM CDT THIS EVENING...
* TEMPERATURE...Temperatures will remain in the upper 80s to
around 90 degrees through early evening.
* HEAT INDEX...With dewpoints well into the 70s, heat index
readings will range from 105 to 110 degrees.
* IMPACTS...The effects of heat are cumulative, and worsen the
longer a heat wave lasts. People without access to air
conditioning, or those that are working or playing outdoors,
are most likely to be impacted by the heat. Heat exhaustion or
heat stroke are possible if work or play is too strenuous.
A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of heat and high humidity will create a
situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of
fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and
check up on relatives and neighbors.
Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a
matter of minutes.
