Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:01 AM CDT Jul. 24, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 8 PM CDT this
evening...

The excessive heat warning... issued by the National Weather
Service in Paducah Kentucky... will continue until 8 PM CDT this
Sunday evening for all of southeast Missouri... southern Illinois
and The Purchase area of west Kentucky.

* The combination of high temperatures in the middle 90s will
combine with oppressive humidity to produce heat indices from
105 to 110 degrees.

* The impact of a heat index of 105 degrees or higher is
considered the level at which the body becomes more susceptible
to heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

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
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.
