Weather Alert

Heat Advisory Extended Through Monday

IL (AP) -- Heat advisory remains in effect from 1:00pm this afternoon to 7:00pm CDT Monday. Dangerous levels of heat and humidity will occur from this afternoon through Monday afternoon. Heat index values will peak from 100 to 107 degrees in the afternoon hours with high temperatures in the low to mid 90s and dew points in the 70s.
The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will lead to an increased risk of heat-related stress and illness. The very young, the elderly, those without air conditioning and those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also car interiors will reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes. Beat the heat, check the backseat! Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle.
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.
A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, and stay out of the sun. And check up on relatives and neighbors.

·         1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled

·         16oz baby portabella mushrooms, fresh

·         1/4 cup roasted red peppers, patted dry, diced

·         1 - 10oz package frozen spinach, defrosted and drained (squeezed of excess water)
