Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 10:21 AM EDT Aug. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 7 PM EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect until 7 PM EDT this evening.

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

* Timing... the heat index values will peak between about 1 PM and
5 PM today, however any shower or thunderstorm that develops
will provide some local relief.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to 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.

   Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to 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.
