Instructions: 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. 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. 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.
Not too much to add to the NWS Heat Advisory. We discussed this heat wave earlier in the week, and again on Friday… and now it’s here. Make sure to use considerable caution. This kind of heat can lead to heat exhaustion pretty rapidly if you’re not properly hydrated and taking proper breaks from rigorous activity. This will be the big story the next 2 days… with a small chance (less than 30%) of a late day T-storm to provide temporary relief.
