A heat advisory from noon to 7 pm on Monday with heat index values up to 100 due to temperatures in the mid 90s

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory from noon to 7 pm on Monday with heat index values up to 100 degrees due to temperatures in the mid 90s and dew points in the upper 60s.

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors, especially older adults who live alone, to make sure they are able to stay cool.

People who work or exercise outside or in hot environments, and children attending summer camps or outdoor sports practices should take extra precautions. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning and know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and health administration (OSHA) 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 a true emergency so please call your local fire department if you suspect a person is suffering from a heat related injury.
