Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 12:13 PM CDT Jun. 24, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 6 PM CDT this evening...

* heat index values... ranging between 105 and 110 degrees through the
afternoon.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high
humidity may result in heat stress or heat related illness.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected, and is issued if temperatures reach at least 103 or if
the heat index reaches around 108. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation
in which heat illnesses are possible.

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 lightweight 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.
