Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:31 AM EDT Aug. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect from noon today to 6 PM EDT
this evening...

* heat index values... around 100.

* Timing... this afternoon.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

New York City residents should call 3-1-1 to obtain "beat the
heat" safety tips.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home, or go to a place that
has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members
and neighbors.

A heat advisory is issued when the combination of heat and
humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees
for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any
length of time.

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! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.
