Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:08 AM CDT Jul. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning now in effect until 8 PM CDT Sunday...

* temperature... high temperatures are expected to range from the
upper 90s to around 103 degrees this afternoon and again Sunday
afternoon across parts of eastern Oklahoma. These temperatures,
combined with high humidity, will create dangerous heat index
values in the 108 to 113 degree range. Overnight temperatures
will provide little relief from the heat, especially in the more
urban areas.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are
possible.

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 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 911.
