Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 4:37 AM EDT Jul. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect from noon today to 11 PM EDT
Sunday...

* heat index values... up to 107 due to temperatures in the upper
90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* Timing... this afternoon and evening and then again Sunday
afternoon through early Sunday evening.

* Impacts... prolonged exposure or any strenuous activity may
lead to heat related illnesses that require immediate medical
attention.

* Locations... parts of the Virginia and North Carolina Piedmont
and foothills.

* Hazards... high heat indices.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means high humidities are expected to combine
with hot temperatures to make it feel like it is 105 degrees or
greater. This combination will increase the likelihood of heat
illnesses. Drink plenty of fluids... stay in an air-conditioned
room... stay out of the sun... check on relatives and neighbors...
and provide shade and fresh water for outdoor animals.

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 lightweight 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.
