...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT THIS EVENING...

* EVENT...Afternoon temperatures are expected to climb into the
  mid 90s across Lower parts of East Texas and Lower Northwest and
  North Central Louisiana well South of Interstate 20. When
  combined with the high humidity, the higher heat indices will
  range from 105 to 108 degrees. However, some portions of the
  advisory area may be affected by showers and thunderstorms
  which will result in cooler temperatures.

* TIMING...through 7 PM CDT.

* IMPACT...Heat related illnesses will be more likely for those
  outdoors, especially when out in direct sunlight.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

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.
