...Hot and Humid Conditions Expected Today for Solar Eclipse...

With expected high humidity levels and temperatures reaching the
upper 80s to near 90 this afternoon, the heat index just before
the solar eclipse could reach the low 90s. With many people
expected to be outdoors today for the eclipse, the potential for
heat related illness may increase. If you will be outside for a
long time today, drink plenty of water and find opportunities to
stay in the shade if possible.
