IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.

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.
