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 now in effect until 7 PM CDT
Wednesday...

* afternoon temperatures in the middle 90s combined with
oppressive humidity levels will produce heat index values in the
110 to 115 degree range 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.
