    ...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT THIS
    EVENING...

    The Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect until 7 PM for
    southeast Missouri, most of southern Illinois, most of western
    Kentucky, and a small part of southwest Indiana. The warning is
    generally southwest of a line from Mount Carmel Illinois to
    Owensboro Kentucky.

    * TIMING...through early this evening.

    * HEAT INDEX VALUES...Peak heat indices today will reach between
    101 and 107 degrees at most locations. However, scattered
    thunderstorms and increasing cloud cover may bring heat index
    values down in some areas.

    * IMPACTS...The combination of the persistent hot temperatures
    and high humidity results in a high risk of heat-related
    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.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    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.
