A strong ridge of high pressure will aid in providing some of the warmest temperatures of the Summer thus far along the West Coast, while dangerously high heat index values up to 110 degrees will be possible from southern Iowa through northern Louisiana. Residents are urged to take precaution while working outside.

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heat advisory is no longer in effect.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 8:25 PM CDT on July 28, 2015

... Slowly decreasing thunderstorm activity through 10 PM CDT...

A broken line of showers and thunderstorms continue to move and
develop to the southwest between 20 to 25 mph this evening. The
rain was moving over parts of The Purchase area of west Kentucky
and southwest Illinois.

Anywhere from a half hour to an hour ahead of the showers and
thunderstorms... a line of gusty winds ranging from 25 mph to
locally 50 mph was noted early this evening.

As the evening progresses... both the wind gusts and forward
movement of the showers and thunderstorms will decrease.

Some locations... especially over The Purchase area of west
Kentucky... may receive three quarters to locally one and a
quarter inches of rain... before the rain lessens in coverage and
intensity.

Given the wet ground and other factors... some trees and tree
limbs may topple due to the gusty winds.

Dangerous lightning will still be a factor... so stay indoors until
the storms have well moved away from your area.

The showers and thunderstorms should gradually slow down and stall
over parts of southeast Missouri and southwest Kentucky near the
Mississippi River before 10 am CDT.
