Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 2:28 PM CDT Jul. 21, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

* temperature... high temperatures will reach the middle to upper
90s through Saturday.

* Heat index... with dewpoints well into the 70s, afternoon heat
index readings will peak from 105 to 110 degrees.

* Impacts... the effects of heat are cumulative, and worsen the
longer a heat wave lasts. People without access to air
conditioning, or those that are working or playing outdoors,
are most likely to be impacted by the heat. Heat exhaustion or
heat stroke are possible if work or play is too strenuous.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of the
heat and high humidity will create a dangerous situation in which
heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids, 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.
