Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 10:09 AM CDT Jul. 23, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this
evening...

* temperatures... highs in the lower 90s are expected each day
through Sunday. Lows in the mid to upper 70s tonight will
provide little relief from the heat.

* Heat Index... Peak heat index values of 100 to 110 degrees are
expected this afternoon until 7 PM this evening. Some areas may
see these high heat index values around 105 degrees linger into
Sunday afternoon as well.

* Impacts... there is a high risk of heat related illnesses for
people with prolonged outdoor exposure... or without access to
air conditioning. The elderly... small children... and pets are
especially susceptible to the heat.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of
water... stay in an air conditioned room... stay out of the sun...
and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets
should never be left unattended in vehicles under any
circumstances. This is especially true during hot weather when
car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes.
