Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:26 AM CDT Jul. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 8 PM CDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Little Rock has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect until 8 PM CDT this evening.

* Event... afternoon temperatures today will be in the 90s, with
heat index values ranging from 100 to 110 degrees.

* Areas affected... much of southern Arkansas.

* Impacts... oppressive conditions may lead to heat stroke and
dehydration for people outdoors.

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.

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.
