Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 4:59 PM EDT Jul. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

* location... the capital region, Lake George Saratoga region,
northern Hudson Valley and northern Taconics.

* Heat index values... up to 97 due to temperatures in the lower
90s, and dewpoints in the mid 60s.

* Timing... through early this evening.

* Impacts... heat illnesses likely for those spending prolonged
periods of time outdoors or in non-air conditioned locations.
Prolonged heat is most dangerous for Young children and the
elderly. Car temperatures can reach lethal temperatures in
minutes. Temperatures will remain very warm and muggy tonight,
preventing non-air conditioned buildings from cooling off.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of
fluids... stay in an air-conditioned room... stay out of the sun...
and check up on relatives and neighbors.

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.
