Special Weather StatementIssued at 04:29 Wednesday 08 July 2020
Maximum heat indices today will climb into the mid to upper 90s
today. A few locations, especially along and south of US 24 could
reach 100 degrees. It will be warmer on Thursday, with heat
indices ranging from 96 to 102. Friday will be slightly cooler,
with heat indices in the low to mid 90s.
Practice heat safety this week. Limit outdoor activities if
possible, particularly anything strenuous. If you plan to be
outside, take frequent breaks in an air conditioned location and
drink a lot of water. If driving, when you park don't forget to
look before you lock: never leave children or pets unattended in a
vehicle. Each year, dozens of children and untold numbers of pets
left in vehicles die from overheating.
