Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:37 PM CDT Jul. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon to 8 PM CDT Wednesday...

The National Weather Service in Saint Louis has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon to 8 PM CDT Wednesday.

* Timing... Wednesday afternoon and early evening.

* Heat index values... around 105 due to high temperatures in the
mid 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high
humidity will likely lead to an increased risk of heat-
related stress and illness. The very Young, the elderly, those
without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous
outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car
interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures and high
humidity will occur. This combination will create a situation in
which heat-related illnesses are possible, especially for those
living in un-air conditioned homes or apartments. People in the
advisory area are advised to avoid poorly ventilated areas and
prolonged work in the sun. Also, keep plenty of liquids on hand
and try to stay in an air conditioned environment.

Where's baby? Look before you lock! Young children and pets
should never be left unattended in vehicles under any
circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather
when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes.
