    A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
    expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
    will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
    possible. Drink plenty of water, wear light weight and loose
    fitting clothing, stay in an air-conditioned room if possible,
    stay out of the sun and take frequent breaks. Check up on
    relatives and neighbors, especially the elderly. Children and
    pets should never be left unattended in vehicles, as interiors
    can reach lethal temperatures in minutes. Know the signs and
    symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat stroke begins
    when the core body temperature reaches around 104 degrees.
