Heat Advisory
Issued: 10:01 AM CDT Aug. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from 1 PM this afternoon to 8 PM CDT
this evening...

The National Weather Service in Saint Louis has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from 1 PM this afternoon to 8 PM CDT
this evening.

* Heat index values... up to around 105 due to temperatures in the
lower to mid 90s, and dewpoints in the mid 70s.

* Timing... much of this afternoon and a portion of early this
evening, between 1 PM and 8 PM.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure. The very Young, the
elderly, those without air conditioning, and those
participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most
susceptible. Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures
in a matter of minutes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures and high
humidity will occur. This combination will create a situation in
which heat-related illnesses are possible, especially for those
living in un-air conditioned homes or apartments. People in the
advisory area are advised to avoid poorly ventilated areas and
prolonged work in the sun. Also, keep plenty of liquids on hand
and try to stay in an air conditioned environment.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to the 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 immediately.

Where's baby? Look before you lock! 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.

People in the Saint Louis metropolitan area can get information
about cooling centers or energy assistance related to the
excessive heat by calling the United way of greater Saint Louis
at 800-427-4626, or if calling from a land line phone dial 2-1-1.
You can also call cool down Saint Louis at 314-241-7668.
