...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM THIS MORNING TO 9 PM CDT
THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from 11 AM this morning to 9 PM CDT
this evening.

* TEMPERATURE...High temperatures will range from 90 to 95 degrees
  this afternoon. Combined with the humidity, this puts the Heat
  Indices into the 103 to 106 degree range for a few hours this
  afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Heat related illnesses may be possible for those
  outdoors in unshaded areas without proper precautions taken.

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.

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.

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 check up on
relatives and neighbors.
