A heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT Saturday.

* Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each
afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure
aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection. These
temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to
produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days
in a row.

* The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will
create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. 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 lightweight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

expected. Drink plenty of fluids... stay in an air-conditioned
room... stay out of the sun... and check up on relatives and
neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.
