Heat Advisory
Issued: 12:29 PM CDT Jul. 26, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 9 PM CDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect until 9 PM CDT this evening.

* Temperature... high temperatures will range from 90 to 95 degrees
this afternoon. Combined with the humidity, this puts the heat

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 9 1 1.

   A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
