Statement as of 4:03 AM CDT on August 20, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 23, 2014


... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT Saturday...

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a heat
advisory... which is in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT
Saturday.

* Temperatures will begin to clim well into the 90s over the next
several days as high pressure aloft builds north from the Gulf
Coast region. These temperatures will combine with rather muggy
conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to
105 or so 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 light weight 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.
