Special Statement
Issued: 12:48 PM CDT Jun. 18, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Dangerous heat once again this afternoon...

Heat warnings and advisories remain in effect through this
afternoon. Heat index values will top out around 100 to 105
degrees this afternoon making for dangerous heat conditions. A
gusty southwest wind around 10 to 20 mph at times may bring some
minor cooling relief, but it could also increase the risk for
dehydration. If you plan to be outside this afternoon avoid
prolonged exposure to the heat or any strenuous activity. Drink
plenty of non-alcoholic fluids to avoid dehydration. Be sure to
take frequent breaks in an air- conditioned room. Also, be sure to
check on relatives and neighbors, and don't Forget about the
pets. Never leave infants, children or pets in a parked car in
these dangerous heat conditions, even for a minute. Be sure to
look before you lock your vehicle.
