Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 2:50 AM CDT Jul. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 7 PM CDT
Sunday...

* temperature... highs in the 90s through Sunday... with afternoon
heat index readings topping out from 105 to 115 degrees.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure. The very Young,
elderly, those without air conditioning, and those
participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be most
susceptible. Vehicle interiors can reach lethal temperatures
in a matter of minutes. Never leave pets, children or the
elderly unattended in parked vehicles. The extended period of
high heat and humidity will worsen the effects of heat stress.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will create a dangerous situation
in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of water, wear
light weight and loose fitting clothing, stay in an air-
conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives
and neighbors. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to
the early morning or evening hours.

Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded
location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call 9 1 1.
