Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 2:50 AM CDT Aug. 19, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Little Rock has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT this
evening.

* Event: hot and humid conditions are expected across portions of
the area... with heat index values near or just over 105 degrees
during the afternoon hours.

* Areas affected: southern sections of the area.

* Timing: expect heat index values to warm to near or just over
105 degrees by around midday... then cooling off by around sunset
this evening.

* Impacts: oppressive heat 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.
