Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Watch
Issued: 3:09 AM CDT Jul. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat watch remains in effect from Thursday afternoon
through Sunday evening...

* temperature... maximum afternoon heat index values from around
105 to 110 degrees will be possible Thursday through Sunday.

* Impacts... an increased risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke to
those engaging in strenuous outdoor activities. Those without
air conditioning will be at risk. Car interiors will reach
lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes. The extended period
of high heat and humidity will worsen the effects of heat
stress, with little relief anticipated at night.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat watch means that a prolonged period of hot
temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and
high humidity will combine to create a dangerous 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.

Never leave pets, children or the elderly unattended in parked
vehicles.




Special Statement
Issued: 3:54 AM CDT Jul. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat index will reach or exceed 100 this afternoon...

High temperatures today are forecast to be around 90 degrees. Very
high humidity levels will contribute to potentially hazardous heat
indices around 100 degrees this afternoon. Over southeast
Missouri, heat indices may reach 105 degrees for a short time,
before thunderstorms bring some relief.

Heat will continue to build Thursday into the weekend. An
excessive heat watch is in effect for that time period.

Stay hydrated during this upcoming heat wave by drinking plenty
of fluids. Take frequent rest breaks in the shade if you must work
outdoors, or reschedule strenuous activity for a cooler time of
day.
