...High heat index values expected today...

Very warm temperatures coupled with high humidity will produce
heat index values between 103 and 108 degrees. A Heat Advisory
may yet be required later today and possibly tomorrow.

Whether or not heat advisories are issued, you need to protect yourself
and others from the impacts of the heat. If outside, stay hydrated,
take breaks in the shade as often as possible and limit strenuous
activities. If driving, never leave kids, pets or anyone with
limited mobility alone in a vehicle for even a few minutes as
rapidly rising temperatures could reach dangerous or even deadly
levels. Remember to look before you lock! Know the signs of heat
stress and seek medical attention if you suspect that you or
someone else is experiencing heat illness.
