High heat and humidity cause concern

A heat wave will begin Friday and continue through Sunday where air temperatures will be into the 90s. Heat index values will be well into the 100s.

The NWS has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for our entire area beginning noon Friday and lasting through Saturday evening.

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of high heat and humidity is expected. The combination could lead to heat-related illnesses such as heatstroke.

Heat safety tips include: Drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated,
staying in an air-conditioned room if possible, and out of the sun.
Checking on pets, family, and neighbors.
Wearing light-weight and light-colored clothing.
