Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 2:40 PM CDT Aug. 19, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 7 PM CDT Sunday...

The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect until 7 PM CDT Sunday.

* Temperature... high temperatures in the low to mid 90s with
peak afternoon heat index values ranging from 105 to 109
degrees.

* 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
neighbors.
