The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a heat

afternoon.

* Heat index values... up to 107 due to temperatures in the lower
90s, and dewpoints in the upper 70s.

* Timing... early through late afternoon.

heat exhaustion and even heat stroke if precautionary measures
are not taken.

will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. To
reduce the risk of heat illness during outdoor work, the

scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned
environments.
