Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:22 PM CDT Jul. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from 1 PM Tuesday to 8 PM CDT
Wednesday...

The National Weather Service in Memphis has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from 1 PM Tuesday to 8 PM CDT
Wednesday.

* Heat index readings... 105 to 109 degrees.

* Timing... during the afternoon and early evening hours Tuesday
and Wednesday.

* Impacts... these conditions will lead to an increased risk of
heat-related illnesses. Heat stroke and dehydration will be
possible for those performing strenuous outdoor activities. The
interior of a vehicle can reach lethal temperatures in a short
period of time.


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.

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.
