* temperature... high temperatures from 94 to 100.

* Heat index... maximum heat index values 105 to 111 degrees.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When

possible and drink plenty of water. Know the signs and symptoms

Pets can succumb to the effects of excessive heat. Ensure pets
have adequate drinking water and a shady place to rest, or bring
them inside.
