Issued: 3:29 AM EDT Jul. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect from 11 am this morning to
7 PM EDT this evening...

* heat index values... up to 108 due to temperatures in the lower
90s, and dewpoints in the mid 70s.

* Timing... heat indices will return to heat advisory criteria,
105 degrees and higher, by late Sun morning. Heat indices will
peak during the mid to late afternoon Sunday, and finally drop
below 105 early Sunday evening.

* Impacts... high heat and humidity will increase the risk for
heat exhaustion and even heat stroke if precautionary measures
are not taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures combined
with high humidity will create a situation in which heat
illnesses may occur. To reduce the risk of heat illness during
outdoor work and activities, the occupational safety and health
administration recommends scheduling frequent breaks in shaded or
air conditioned environments.

Never leave unattended children or pets in a closed vehicle,
temperatures inside can rise to fatal levels within minutes. Make
sure outside pets and livestock have access to a well ventilated
and shaded area with plenty of water available.
