Excessive Heat Warning
Statement as of 8:43 PM EDT on July 29, 2015

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 6 PM EDT
Thursday...

* heat index values... around 100 degrees.

* Temperatures... around 90 Thursday afternoon, but with higher
humidity values. In addition... low temperatures are only
forecast to drop to the upper 70s in the urban centers tonight.

* Impacts... the combination of excessive heat and humidity is a
danger if proper precautions are not taken.

* Outlook... an extended period of 90 degree daytime temperatures
looks to occur for much of the region during the rest of this
week and into early next week. However... the humidity is
expected to be on the lower side... especially on Friday.

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 hot
temperatures and high humidity will create a dangerous situation
in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids...
stay in an air-conditioned room... stay out of the sun... and check
up on relatives and neighbors.

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.
