...RISK OF DANGEROUS HEAT CONDITIONS THROUGH THE WEEKEND...

A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER OUR REGION WILL BRING AFTERNOON
TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 90S NEAR THE COAST...TO NEAR 100
INLAND...FROM THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY WITH LITTLE OR NO RELIEF
EXPECTED.

COMBINED WITH HIGH SURFACE HUMIDITY...THE INLAND HEAT INDEX WILL
REACH 102 TO 107 EACH AFTERNOON. COASTAL AREAS MAY SEE 108 TO 110 IN
SOME PLACES DUE TO HIGHER HUMIDITY.

HEAT EXHAUSTION...CRAMPS...OR IN EXTREME CASES HEAT STROKE...CAN
RESULT FROM PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO THESE CONDITIONS. CHILDREN...THE
ELDERLY...AND THOSE WITH CHRONIC AILMENTS ARE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE.

THOSE WORKING OR PLAYING SPORTS OUTDOORS FROM LATE MORNING THROUGH
THE AFTERNOON ON THESE DAYS ARE URGED TO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER AND
SPORT DRINKS. TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS TO PREVENT OVERHEATING. REFRAIN
FROM THE INTAKE OF CAFFEINATED AND ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. REMEMBER TO
CHECK ON RELATIVES AND NEIGHBORS...ESPECIALLY THE ELDERLY...AND
ENSURE THEY HAVE AIR CONDITIONING. PETS ARE BETTER OFF INDOORS BY
MIDDAY BUT IF THEY MUST BE OUTDOORS ENSURE THEY HAVE SHADE AND PLENTY
OF FRESH WATER.
