Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:45 AM EDT Jul. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 10 PM EDT
Sunday...

* heat index values... 105 to 110 this afternoon and on Sunday
afternoon. Values will be a bit lower in the elevated terrain of
the Poconos and far northern New Jersey, as well as right along
the coast.

* Temperatures... maximum readings in the middle and upper 90s
this afternoon and on Sunday afternoon. Overnight lows will be
mainly in the upper 70s.

* Timing... the most dangerous of the heat and humidity will occur
from mid afternoon into the early evening both days.

* Impacts... the excessive heat and humidity may cause heat stress
or heat stroke. The most susceptible individuals are the
elderly and those with pre-existing health issues.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to the early morning or
the late evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion
and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing.
Drink plenty of water.

To reduce your risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety
and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest
breaks in a shaded or air conditioned environment. Anyone overcome
by heat should be moved to a cool shaded location. Heat stroke is
an emergency, call 9 1 1.

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will create a dangerous situation.
Stay in an air-conditioned environment, stay out of the sun, and
check on elderly relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in a
vehicle under any circumstance. This is especially true during hot
weather when a car's interior can reach lethal temperatures in a
matter of minutes.
