Heat Advisory

Statement as of 9:02 AM CDT on August 21, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 26, 2014


... Heat advisory now in effect until 7 PM CDT Tuesday...

The heat advisory is now in effect until 7 PM CDT Tuesday.

* The duration of excessive heat and humidity will continue
through Tuesday... therefore the heat advisory has been extended
through Tuesday. This is especially important given all the area
events... from High School football and soccer games and
practices... to state fairs ongoing... that will continue to be
conducted during this extended period of excessive heat and
humidity.

* Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each
afternoon through the weekend and even into early next week.
This occurs as high pressure aloft builds into and across the
nation's midsection. These temperatures will combine with high
humidity to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105
for most locales several days in a row. It is possible isolated
locations could see the heat index top 105 at times.

* 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.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
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.
