This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northern New York, central
Vermont, northeast Vermont, northwest Vermont and southern Vermont.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Heat index values on Sunday and Monday reached the upper 80s to
lower 90s with some isolated mid 90s, and these same values will be
reached today across northern New York and Vermont. The heat index is
a measure of how hot it really feels when relative humidity is
factored in with the air temperature...which will be reaching record
levels today. This will create a greater likelihood of heat related
illnesses...especially when prolonged exposure or strenuous activity
takes place in these conditions.

Anyone with outdoor activities planned today may be more susceptible
to heat related illnesses...especially if you will be outdoors for
an extended period of time or taking part in strenuous activity. Stay
hydrated and take breaks in the shade...check on elderly family or
friends who may not have air conditioning...and do not leave kids or
pets unattended in vehicles.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

High heat index values will develop again Wednesday afternoon for
parts of the region. See Day One period above for details on
potential health impacts.


Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
