    ...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 8 PM CDT WEDNESDAY...

    The National Weather Service in Saint Louis has issued a Heat
    Advisory, which is in effect from noon to 8 PM CDT Wednesday.

    * TIMING...Wednesday afternoon and early evening.

    * HEAT INDEX VALUES...Around 105 due to high temperatures in the
    mid 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

    * IMPACTS...The combination of hot temperatures and high
    humidity will likely lead to an increased risk of heat-
    related stress and 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 can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures and high
    humidity will occur. This combination will create a situation in
    which heat-related illnesses are possible, especially for those
    living in un-air conditioned homes or apartments. People in the
    Advisory area are advised to avoid poorly ventilated areas and
    prolonged work in the sun. Also, keep plenty of liquids on hand
    and try to stay in an air conditioned environment.

    Where's baby? Look before you lock! 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.
