...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CDT THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect until 6 PM CDT this evening.

* TEMPERATURE...Highs in the low to mid 90s will combine with high
  humidities to bring heat indices into the upper 90s pushing 100
  degrees.

* IMPACTS...Heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible,
  especially athletes and those working outdoors. Those with
  outdoor plans will want to stay well hydrated this afternoon and
  evening, with summer-like conditions for much of the area.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air-conditioned
room...stay out of the sun...and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

   Take extra precautions...if you work or spend time outside.
When possible...reschedule strenuous activities to early morning
or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

   To reduce risk during outdoor work...the occupational safety
and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest
breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome
by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.   Heat
stroke is an emergency...call 9 1 1.
