Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:12 PM EDT Jul. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory now in effect until 7 PM EDT Sunday...

* heat index values... 105 to 109 degrees.


* Timing... this afternoon and again Sunday afternoon. In addition,
lows tonight will only reach the mid 70s, and will be slow to
fall below 80 degrees.

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

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. Hot temperatures and high humidity will 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. Fans are essential to move the
air for those without air conditioning.

Children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles.
Car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes. Bring pets indoors if possible, even if for just short
periods of time; and ensure they have access to drinking water,
which can evaporate from dishes very quickly in extreme heat.
