Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 11:45 AM CDT Jul. 21, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening.

* Temperature... high temperatures will range from 94 to 99 degrees
which puts the heat indices into the 105 to 107 degree range for
a few hours through this afternoon.

* Impacts... heat related illnesses may be possible for those
outdoors in unshaded areas without proper precautions taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

   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 check up
on relatives and neighbors.
