... Heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT Wednesday...

* event... an upper level ridge will remain in place across the
Southern Plains through Wednesday, resulting in afternoon
temperatures again climbing into the mid 90s to near 100
degrees. Southerly winds will maintain the high humidity
through Wednesday, with resultant heat indices ranging from
105 to 110 degrees. Limited relief from the heat is expected
tonight, with low temperatures only falling briefly into the
mid and upper 70s.

* Timing... through 7 PM CDT Wednesday.

* Impact... high heat index readings will increase the risk of
heat-related illnesses.

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.
