Issued: 2:31 AM CDT Jul. 26, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory now in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening...

* heat index readings... 105 to 109 degrees.

* Timing... peak index values likely 2 PM CDT through 6 PM CDT
Wednesday.

* Impacts... these conditions will lead to an increased risk of
heat-related illnesses. Heat stroke and dehydration will be
possible for those performing strenuous outdoor activities.
The interior of a vehicle can reach lethal temperatures in a
short period of time.

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.

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.
