Heat index values on Sunday reached the upper 80s to lower 90s and these same values will be reached today and Tuesday 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 and Tuesday. 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 and Tuesday 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. $$ Evenson
