Excessive Heat Warning
Statement as of 3:41 PM CDT on July 28, 2015

... Excessive heat warning in effect until 7 PM CDT Wednesday...

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued an excessive
heat warning... which is in effect until 7 PM CDT Wednesday. The
heat advisory is no longer in effect.

* Afternoon temperatures in the lower to middle 90s combined with
oppressive humidity levels will produce heat index values around
110 degrees late this afternoon and again Wednesday afternoon.

* A heat index of 110 is generally considered the threshold when
heat effects can become extreme... making heat exhaustion and
heat stroke a much greater concern if precautions are not taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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
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. Make sure pets have plenty of fresh
water.

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.






Special Statement
Statement as of 6:07 PM CDT on July 28, 2015

... Locally heavy rain and gusty winds possible through 800 PM...

Parts of the pennyrile of west Kentucky... stretching from Kentucky
Lake and Hopkinsville Kentucky... northwest into the southern
Illinois south of Route 13... and extending back toward Marble Hill
and Perryville Missouri will likely see periodic thunderstorm
activity through 8 PM CDT this evening.

Locally heavy rain... between three quarters to one and one quarter
of an inch an hour... frequent lightning... and brief wind gusts
between 30 and 40 mph will be likely with stronger storms as they
develop... then collapse during the early evening hours.

These thunderstorms may cause small ditches and creeks to briefly
overflow. Some low lying areas and flood prone roadways may also
be inundated with water for a short time.

Lightning can be a dangerous killer if you are outdoors... so stay
in a safe shelter indoors until the thunderstorm has passed your
area for at least a half hour.

The thunderstorms have reached point that they are interacting
with each other and are covering a larger area. In this
environment... the potential for severe storms will decrease as the
evening progresses.

A vast majority of the thunderstorm activity should begin to
decrease rapidly after 800 PM CDT.
