..HOT AND HUMID WEATHER IS ON THE WAY...

AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD ACROSS THE REGION
BY THE END OF THE WEEK...RESULTING IN INCREASING TEMPERATURE AND
HUMIDITY LEVELS. AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL CLIMB INTO THE LOWER TO
MIDDLE 90S FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY...WHILE PEAK HEAT INDEX VALUES
TOP OUT IN THE 100 TO 105 DEGREE RANGE.

THIS WILL BE THE LONGEST AND MOST SUSTAINED PERIOD OF HEAT OF THE
ENTIRE SUMMER. PEOPLE ARE URGED TO USE CAUTION IF THEY MUST BE OUTSIDE
FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS AND TAKE
FREQUENT BREAKS TO AVOID OVERHEATING.
