...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT SUNDAY...

* TIMING...Through Sunday evening.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...Peak values will be between 103 and 107
  degrees during the mid/late afternoon. In addition, we will
  likely experience values of 100 degrees or higher for several
  hours at a time.

* IMPACTS...The combination of hot temperatures and high
  humidity will lead to an increased risk of heat related stress
  and illness. The very young, the elderly, those without air
  conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor
  activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car interiors
  will reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes. Beat
  the heat, check the back seat!

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.
