... Heat advisory remains in effect until 6 PM EDT this evening...

* locations... much of central Georgia along and south of a line
from Hamilton to Forsyth to Louisville.

* Heat index values... 105 to 108

will create heat index readings of at least 105 degrees and very
warm overnight temperatures. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an
air-conditioned room and stay out of direct sunshine. Remember,
the elderly, very Young, and people with heart conditions, are
most at risk in extreme heat. Friends, relatives, and neighbors
should check on people who may be at risk.
