Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky

 
ILLINOIS (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
(Scroll down for affected locations)

Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row.

The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible.
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.

Precautionary/preparedness actions:

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.
