Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:22 PM CDT Jul. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 8 PM CDT Saturday...

* heat index values... up to 105 due to temperatures in the lower
to mid 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* Timing... continuing through early Saturday evening.

* Temperature... high temperatures each afternoon are forecast to
be in the lower to mid 90s.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure. 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.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to the 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 immediately.

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.
