Advisory

A HOT AND HUMID DAY IN STORE FOR THE REGION Avoid strenuos activities later today. Thunderstorms could form later.


...A HOT AND HUMID DAY IN STORE FOR THE REGION...

THE COMBINATION OF HIGH TEMPERATURES OF AROUND 90 DEGREES AND AFTERNOON DEW POINTS AVERAGING IN THE LOWER 70S WILL PRODUCE HEAT INDICES THAT WILL REACH INTO THE LOWER TO MID 90S LATER TODAY. THIS WILL MATCH IF NOT SLIGHTLY EXCEED MEMORIAL DAY AS THE MOST OPPRESSIVE DAY OF THE WARM SEASON SO FAR.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING ANY STRENUOUS OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES LATER TODAY, PLEASE TAKE IT EASY AND DRINK PLENTY OF LIQUIDS. IF POSSIBLE POSTPONE THEM TO A COOLER PART OF THE DAY. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE ELDERLY AND VERY YOUNG ARE DOING WELL AND THAT YOUR PETS HAVE SUFFICIENT WATER AND SHELTER FROM THE HEAT. NEVER LEAVE A CHILD OR PET IN A VEHICLE EVEN FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON AND GIVE SOME RELIEF FROM THE HEAT. THE GREATEST THREAT FROM THE THUNDERSTORMS AS OF EARLY THIS MORNING IS FOR HEAVY RAIN TO OCCUR AS THEY ARE EXPECTED TO BE SLOW MOVERS. IF THE THUNDERSTORMS CAN ORGANIZE INTO A LINE, THE THREAT FOR STRONGER WIND GUSTS WOULD INCREASE. ANY THUNDERSTORM WILL PRODUCE LIGHTNING AND LIGHTNING KILLS. PLEASE SEEK SHELTER AT THE FIRST SIGN OF THREATENING WEATHER.
