Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Watch
Issued: 3:22 AM EDT Jul. 18, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat watch now in effect from Friday morning through
Sunday evening...

* heat index values... potentially 110 to 115 degrees each
afternoon. Heat indices will likely remain between 80 and 90
each night, greatly increasing the potential for heat related
illnesses.

* Impacts... dangerously high temperatures and humidity could
quickly cause heat stress or heat stroke to those outside or
without access to air conditioning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat watch means that a prolonged period of
dangerously high temperatures is possible. Prepare for extreme
temperatures and high humidity which could result in heat
illnesses.

Take extra precautions if you must 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 911.
