Excessive Heat Warning
Statement as of 8:59 AM CDT on July 29, 2015

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this
evening...

* afternoon temperatures in the middle 90s combined with
oppressive humidity levels will produce heat index values
around 110 degrees this afternoon generally along and west of
a line from Marion Illinois to Paducah to Mayfield Kentucky.

* 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 environment... 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.
