Area Heat Advisory Issued Until 7 PM Wednesday
Conditions for the next 36 hours warrants a Heat Advisory issued by the National Weather Service.
Hazardous heat will continue to effect the area for the next couple days with temperatures in the mid to upper 90’s and heat index values between 100 and 105°F. It is recommended to slow down, reduce or eliminate any strenuous activity until the cooler times of the day. Children, seniors and anyone with health problems should stay in the coolest place available, not necessarily indoors.
With this being the second day of excessive heat in a three day event it is recommended to check on the older, sick, or frail people who may need help responding to the heat. Do NOT leave children or pets in parked vehicles, even with windows down, for any amount of time as temperatures can rise extremely fast.
A slight break in the heat will come Thursday as a weak cold front pushes through the region lowering the dewpoint temperatures and increasing chances of clouds and precipitation.
