Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:15 AM CDT Jul. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 8 PM CDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Little Rock has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon today to 8 PM CDT this
evening.

* Event... expect heat index values to climb into the 105 to 109
degree range this afternoon through early this evening.

* Areas affected... portions of the Arkansas River valley region
and northeast Arkansas.

* Impacts... high heat index values make it difficult for your
body to cool itself off. This could lead to heat stress or
heat stroke for anyone engaged in outdoor activities.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids... stay in an air-conditioned
room... stay out of the sun... and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

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.

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 9 1 1.
