Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:34 AM CDT Jul. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning in effect until 7 PM CDT Sunday...

The National Weather Service in Springfield has issued an
excessive heat warning, which is in effect until 7 PM CDT Sunday.
The heat advisory is no longer in effect.

* Temperature... high temperatures will warm into the upper 90s to
around 100 degrees this afternoon as highs in the middle 90s
occur on Sunday. Heat index values between 107 and 112 degrees
will occur this afternoon as heat index values between 103 and
108 are expected on Sunday.

* Impacts... a prolonged period of hot weather can increase the
risk of heat related illness, including heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. The very Young, the elderly, and those without
access to air conditioning will be especially vulnerable.

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.

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 light weight 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.

   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.

   Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
