The national weather service has issued an excessive heat warning that will bring dangerously hot weather which can reach 105° on Wednesday and up to 110° on Thursday.
The warning goes into effect at noon today, Wednesday, and remains until Thursday 8:00 pm.
The national weather service says that the most oppressive humidity is forecast to occur on Thursday. The period of hot and humid conditions will likely continue through Friday. Overnight low temperatures in the mid to upper 70s will not provide much relief from the heat.
Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.
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. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone
overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
