...DANGEROUS HEAT AND HUMIDITY ARE EXPECTED THURSDAY OVER PORTIONS
OF WEST AND CENTRAL UPPER MICHIGAN...

HIGH TEMPERATURES ON THURSDAY ARE FORECAST TO REACH INTO THE UPPER
80S TO LOWER 90S ACROSS MUCH OF UPPER MICHIGAN MAINLY ALONG AND WEST
OF A LINE FROM MUNISING TO RAPID RIVER...AND ALONG AND SOUTH OF A
LINE FROM L`ANSE TO ONTONAGON. THE COMBINATION OF THE HOT
TEMPERATURES COUPLED WITH VERY HIGH RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL
CREATE DANGEROUS HEAT INDEX VALUES APPROACHING 100 DEGREES AT SOME
LOCATIONS.

IF YOU MUST WORK OUTDOORS...REMEMBER TO TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS IN
SHADED AREAS AND DRINK PLENTY OF WATER TO REMAIN HYDRATED. YOUNG
CHILDREN AND ELDERLY PEOPLE SHOULD BE MONITORED CLOSELY AS THEY ARE
MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO HEAT RELATED ILLNESS.
