Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:28 PM CDT Aug. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning in effect until 9 PM CDT Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Wichita has issued an excessive
heat warning, which is in effect until 9 PM CDT Tuesday. The heat
advisory is no longer in effect.

* Heat index values... near 110 expected.

* Timing... Tuesday afternoon through early evening.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high
humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which
heat illnesses are possible. In addition, temperatures can
turn deadly in vehicles left unattended with no air
conditioning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of
heat and humidity will create a dangerous situation where
heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids and stay
in an air conditioned room. Stay out of the sun and check
up on relatives and neighbors. Temperatures within vehicles
can become lethal in a few minutes. Never leave children or
pets in vehicles. Remember to beat the heat, check the backseat.
