...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 8 PM CDT WEDNESDAY...

The National Weather Service in Springfield has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from noon to 8 PM CDT Wednesday.

* TEMPERATURE...Temperatures on Wednesday will warm into the mid
  90s area wide. Combined with abundant humidity, heat index
  values are expected to range from 103 and 107 degrees during the
  afternoon hours.

* IMPACTS...The combination of warm temperatures and high humidity
  will result in an increased potential for heat related
  illnesses. The very young, the elderly, and those without access
  to air conditioning are at the highest risk.

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.
