Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:26 PM EDT Aug. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 8 PM EDT Tuesday...

* heat index values... 100 to 105 this afternoon due to
temperatures in the lower to mid 90s, and dewpoints in the lower
to mid 70s. Around 100 Tuesday afternoon with temperatures in
the lower 90s and dew points around 70.

* Timing... the rest of this afternoon, then again Tuesday
afternoon. Any shower or thunderstorm will provide some local
relief. The dangerous heat and humidity may last into Wednesday.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

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 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 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 an emergency, call 9 1 1.
