Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:29 PM CDT Jul. 16, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning in effect from 1 PM Wednesday to 7 PM
CDT Saturday...

The National Weather Service in Lincoln has issued an excessive
heat warning, which is in effect from 1 PM Wednesday to 7 PM CDT
Saturday. The excessive heat watch is no longer in effect.

* Temperature... highs in the mid to upper 90s daily, with heat
index reaching 105 to 110.

* 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. Never leave pets, children or the
elderly unattended in parked vehicles. The extended period of
high heat and humidity will worsen the effects of heat stress.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

   An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of
fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and
check up on relatives and neighbors.

   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.
