... Heat advisory in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening.

will combine with high humidity to produce heat indices of 106
to 110 degrees this afternoon.

* Impacts... heat related illnesses may be possible for those
outdoors in unshaded areas without proper precautions taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, scheduling frequent rest
breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome
