Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:37 PM CDT Jul. 16, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning in effect from 1 PM Wednesday to 8 PM
CDT Saturday...

The National Weather Service in Topeka has issued an excessive
heat warning, which is in effect from 1 PM Wednesday to 8 PM CDT
Saturday. The excessive heat watch is no longer in effect.

* Temperature... expected high temperatures in the middle 90s to
around 100 degrees will combine with humid conditions to bring
afternoon heat indices into the 103 to 110 degree range.

* Impacts... heat-related illnesses are possible for those
spending a prolonged amount of time outdoors or those who are
more susceptible to heat, such as Young children and elderly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot weather is expected, during which heat illnesses
are likely. Postpone any non-essential outdoor activities during
the midday and afternoon. Stay in an air-conditioned building and
check up on relatives and neighbors. If you must venture outside,
drink plenty of water, wear light and loose fitting clothing, and
reduce strenuous activities. Anyone overcome by heat should be
moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency,
call 9 1 1.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
