Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:45 AM CDT Jul. 23, 2016 – National Weather Service

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

* timing... heat index values will rise above 105 degrees each
afternoon through Sunday.

* Heat index values... up to 110 due to temperatures in the upper
90s and dewpoints in the mid 70s.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high
humidity will likely 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 can reach lethal temperatures in a matter
of minutes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures and high humidity will occur. In
addition... nighttime conditions will remain warm and muggy
providing little chance for relief. This combination will create
a dangerous situation in which heat-related illnesses are
likely... especially for those living in un-air conditioned homes
or apartments.

People in the Saint Louis metropolitan area can get information
about cooling centers or energy assistance related to the
excessive heat by calling the United way of greater Saint Louis
at 800-427-4626... or if calling from a land line phone dial 2-1-
1. You can also call cool down Saint Louis at 314-241-7668.
