Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:58 PM EDT Aug. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 8 PM EDT Wednesday...

* heat index values... around 100 during the afternoon and early
evening hours due to temperatures in the lower 90s, and dew
point readings in the lower 70s.

* Timing... through Wednesday. Any showers or thunderstorms will
provide some brief 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 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 late
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.
