Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:43 AM CDT Jul. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT Friday...

The National Weather Service in Nashville has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT Friday.

* Heat index values... 100 to 104 this afternoon, and 102 to 106
for Friday afternoon.

* Locations... the highest heat index values will occur along and
west of I-65, but this advisory may need to be expanded farther
east on Friday. Also, the advisory may need to be extended
through Saturday.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will lead to an increased risk of heat related stress and
illness. The very Young, the elderly, those without air
conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor
activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car interiors
will reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to 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.
