Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:49 AM CDT Jul. 28, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from 1 PM this afternoon to 7 PM CDT
this evening...

The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from 1 PM this afternoon to 7 PM CDT
this evening.

* Event... very hot and humid conditions are expected this
afternoon temperatures rising to the middle and upper 90s. When
combined with the humidity, heat index values could range from
105 to 109 degrees.


* Timing... these high heat index readings will occur during the
afternoon hours, and possibly into the early evening.

* Impact... heat related illnesses may become possible for those
outdoors, especially when out in direct sunlight.


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
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.
