Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:00 PM CDT Jul. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening...

* timing and areas affected... through 7 PM across all of
northwest and north central Alabama, as well as portions of
southern middle Tennessee.

* Temperature... temperatures in the low to mid 90s, combined
with the humidity, will produce heat index values in the 105
to 109 degree range during the afternoon.

* Impacts... the combination of heat and humidity will lead to an
increased risk for heat related illnesses, including heat
stroke and dehydration for those outside or without air
conditioning. Additionally, car interiors will reach lethal
temperatures within a matter of minutes.

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. Check up on relatives and
neighbors. Absolutely do not leave children or pets unattended in
vehicles!

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 911.
