Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:40 PM CDT Jun. 17, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 8 PM CDT Monday...

* timing... a dangerous combination of heat and humidity will
continue through at least early Monday evening.

* Heat index values... between 100 and 105 due to temperatures in
the mid 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high
humidity will likely lead to an increased risk of heat-
related stress and illness. The very Young, the elderly, those
without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous
outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car
interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures and high
humidity will occur. This combination will create a situation in
which heat-related illnesses are possible, especially for those
living in un-air conditioned homes or apartments. People in the
advisory area are advised to avoid poorly ventilated areas and
prolonged work in the sun. Also, keep plenty of liquids on hand
and try to stay in an air conditioned environment.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to the early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Where's baby? Look before you lock! Young children and pets
should never be left unattended in vehicles under any
circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather
when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes.
