...Heat index values of 105 to 109 degrees are expected today...

The combination of warm temperatures and high dewpoints will
produce heat index values of 105 to 109 degrees today. A few
locations across these counties may briefly reach heat index
values of 110 degrees for less than two hours. Residents with
outdoor activities planned are urged to drink plenty of water,
wear light weight and light colored clothing and take frequent
breaks from the heat. Young children and pets should never be left
unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is
especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can
reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
