...Practice Heat Safety and Protect Against Sunburn Today...

A ridge of high pressure will remain across the Tennessee Valley
and southern Appalachians today producing mostly dry, mostly
sunny, and very warm afternoon temperatures. Heat indices will
climb to 90 to 95 degrees across much of the area.

Due to the widespread eclipse viewing across the region and many
outside venues, heat exposure and exhaustion will be a concern.
Drink plenty of liquids and take frequent breaks in shaded areas
as often as possible. Never leave people or pets unattended in
your vehicle. Look before you lock.

The mostly sunny sky will also allow for high ultraviolet
radiation conditions today. The potential of sunburn is high so
wear sunscreen and hat to protect yourself from the suns rays.

Stay tuned to NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio and your local media
for the latest weather conditions.
