    * HEAT INDEX...105 to 110 each afternoon through Saturday.

    * IMPACTS...Prolonged exposure to heat and humidity may lead to

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    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. Anyone overcome by heat
    should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an
    emergency, call 9 1 1. Young children and pets should never be
    left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is
    especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can
    reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

    An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
    dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
    temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a DANGEROUS
    SITUATION in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of
    fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and
    check up on relatives and neighbors.
