Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 9:51 PM CDT Jul. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect from noon Thursday to 7 PM CDT
Friday...

* temperature... highs around 90 Thursday and 90 to 95 Friday,
combined with dew points in the 70s, will make for heat indices
of 95 to 105 degrees for both Thursday and Friday afternoon.
Low temperatures will only fall to 70 to 75, providing little
relief from the heat.

* Impacts... the high heat indices during the day will lead to
increased risk for heat-related illness for those active
outdoors or with limited access to air conditioning.

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.
